Butter Cookies Recipe
- 2/3 cup butter
- 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
- 1 medium-sized egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon butter extract
- 1-¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Demerara sugar (for sprinkling)
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Chill cookie sheets.
- Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, beating well to combine. Beat in vanilla and butter extracts.
- Combine together flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, folding until just incorporated. Form dough into a log . Wrap in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour. This would make the dough flakier.
- Remove dough from refrigerator. Peel off plastic. Slice dough log into ½-inch circles. Arrange on chilled sheets, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle dough tops with demerara sugar. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly golden and crispy around the edges.
- Allow to cool for 1 to 2 minutes on cookie sheets. Transfer to wire racks and allow to cool completely.
- You may use spritz molds to shape cookies, or roll out dough before wrapping in plastic, and cut with cookie cutters of your preferred shapes and sizes. You can also omit the demerara topping and frost cookies as desired.
