Holiday Cookie Tradition
Every year cookie baking is our holiday tradition before Christmas day. I have the kids pick out their favorite recipe and the baking begins. Baking is therapeutic and I enjoy it during the holiday season. This year I only baked three varieties that included our favorite chewy chocolate chip, vanishing oatmeal raisin and a new sugar cookie recipe. Last year, I started substituting sea salt in all of my cookie recipes. We love the combination of extra salty and sweet. This was a very easy recipe and no refrigeration is required.
I found that after rolling cookies in sugar to try and keep the cookies slightly round. When I pressed down the dough the batch was flat.
I found the recipe on Pinterest, from AddAPinch.com:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1½ cups granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
