grandma's cookbook - Soft Sugar Cookies

My grandsons are at my house - they had a sleepover last night. I made cinnamon almondsyesterday and chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter cookies, but Josiah's current favorite cookie is a butter/sugar cookie, so this morning I made a batch of them for him . . . because I am grandma :-)

The recipe is very tasty, so I thought I'd share it with you this morning.
  • 1 cup of butter - softened
  • 3/4 cup of sugar - I use half brown sugar and half white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons green sugar sprinkles
  • 2 tablespoons blue sugar sprinkles
  • 2 cups flour - a touch more if the dough is too sticky
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, then add eggs and vanilla and mix a couple minutes. Add dry ingredients and mix - the sprinkles are just for fun - use any you have!

Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets and bake at 350 for about eight minutes - until golden brown on the bottom and edges and still nice and soft! Enjoy!
