I remember making sugar cookies when our children were young :) "Yummy"!

One of our household favourites.

Can't wait to make shortbread cookies for Christmas, made with butter! :)

I have the best drop sugar cookie recipe that has 6 eggs, but I can't find it.  It was a family recipe and they were so thick and chewy but very light.  No, I don't need to eat any but I would sure like to be able to pass it down to the grandkids.

Butter cookies are even better :)

  • 8 ounces unsalted butter( 2 sticks)
  • 34 cup granulated sugar
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    1. Beat the butter, sugar, salt and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.
    2. Mix in the egg yolk until well incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl at least once.
    3. Add the flour and mix just until incorporated.
    4. Scrape onto a lightly floured board and knead a few times, just until the dough smooths out.
    5. Turn onto a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a log, wrap up and refrigerate for several hours or freeze.
    6. Before baking, preheat the oven to 325°F.
    7. Line your baking sheets with parchment.
    8. Slice the dough into slices about 1/8" thick and place them on the sheets about an inch apart (they won't be spreading very much, but they need air room around each cookie).
    9. Bake until JUST beginning to turn golden around the edges, about 16-18 minutes.
    10. Note: you can do many things with these cookies.
    11. You could roll the dough out and cut shapes.
    12. You could slice them even thinner and sandwich them with chocolate or jam or lemon curd.
    13. You could make them and then dip them half into chocolate.

I have a recipe.  It's not the one that we used that was on the press box when I was a kid, but it is a recipe specifically for press cookies.  I've used it once since I got it but it has been a long time.  Press cookies are a lot of work.

Can you share your recipe please ?
