... but I wanted a cuter photo for my records. And I thought I'd write down the sugar cookie recipe. I don't love the traditional cakey sugar cookie with frosting on top. But a crispy yet chewy, rich, buttery sugar cookie? yum. I got it in my head that that's what I wanted to use for the favor, (since I had this cute light pink sugar to roll them in that TOTALLY didn't show up anyway), did some searches, went with this recipe and LOVED it. If I record it here, I'll never lose it. And there's got to be someone out there who needs more butter in their life.
Chewy, Cracked-Top Sugar cookies
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I added a little more.... I've yet to have too much vanilla in a cookie.)
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes... unless you're doing huge ones like me, then maybe 13 or 14.
