Sugar-Dipped Butter Cookies

ADVERTISEMENT

I am sitting at Valentine’s Resort at Harbour Island, Bahamas with owner and guests aboard a 98-foot motor yacht, when the boss asks me to make something sweet.

This sugar butter cookie recipe takes only about 20 minutes to prepare and makes for a nice bar snack. Simple, yet satisfying, spells success.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt substitute

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375°. Combine 1 cup sugar with ¾ cup butter (1 ½ sticks) in large bowl. Add vanilla. Beat at medium speed (I use a stand mixer), scraping bowl until creamy. Add egg; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to slow; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed. Place remaining cup of sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and dip the top of the balls in the sugar. Place sugar-dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.

Enjoy, JW
