Love these with the basic frosting. Prep time includes chill time.
- Cream together the butter and sugar; beat in 1 egg, add salt and flour. Mix all ingredients are well blended.
- Chill dough for 3-4 hours before rolling. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out and cut. Bake about 8-10 minutes or until barely colored.
- Cookies can be frosted and decorated or eaten just plain.
These are really nice basic sugar cookies. They are easy to whip up and taste good. I reduced the butter a bit as I dont like my cookies to be too greasy and that way I didnt need to chill the dough and it was very easy to work with. I used only 60 g of sugar and the cookies are still nice and sweet. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this recipe here with us, Ceezie. I ended up with 35 cookies from the full recipe.

Very good cookies! 1 thing I esp like about them is they are not as sweet as others, almost like a shortbread w/a cookie texture ~ a good thing if you like them frosted (DH) or lightly dusted w/powd sugar (me). They are an easy-fix w/just 5 ingredients, but IMO benefit from a tsp of vanilla as an add. The full chill time is a must. Even after that I found the dough moist & buttery, enough so that I used a fair amt of extra flour to roll & handle them. If vanilla is used, even more may be needed. My yield was 30 of the 3-in size & they were done at 8 min ~ just barely getting a light crunch on the bottom & edges, but still soft & chewy. Made for Spring PAC 2008 & thx for sharing your recipe w/us.
I changed the white sugar in these to organic dried cane juice so that my Son, whom has Autism, could eat them. He never gets cookies so he LOVED THESE!!! Very easy to make, tasty and easy to adapt for different diets.
