Butter Cookies - Can't Eat Just One! by Charlene Sands
As promised on Facebook, I am posting this wonderful and easy/peasy butter cookie recipe. I know you'll enjoy!!
1 Cup Butter (use real butter of course)
6 Tablespoons Confectioner's Sugar
2 Cups Flour
1 tsp vanilla (sometimes for added flavor I use almond extract)
1 Cup Nuts (optional - though I never put them in- the cookie is delish without anything else)
Cream butter and for best results, let the butter soften naturally. Do not melt over heat.
Add other ingredients gradually until all incorporated. (Do this without a mixer- the old-fashioned way with a spoon or spatula) Knead well and roll into balls about the width of a quarter or more. Flatten with fork. If batter gets sticky, add a little flour to fork.
Bake in 350 oven on cookie sheet for 12 minutes (but check them after 8 min)
The cookie top will not brown. Check the bottom for browning.
Let the cookies cool for a full 15 min or they will crumble.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar while hot.
Makes approximately 30 cookies.
It's true. You can't eat just one. Enjoy!!!
