Sugar cookie

I’ve been cooking the last couple days, but nothing blog-worthy. So I decided to post an old favorite here.

I searched for a sugar cookie recipe online last summer, but it took me a few times to perfect the one I found. The original was not sweet enough and my initial revision was too sweet.

In honor of my sister (who tells me you can find the best recipes online by adding “best” followed by whatever you’re looking for), I've titled this: best sugar cookie recipe.
Preheat oven to 375.

Mix 1/2 c unsalted, room-temperature butter, 1/2 c granulated sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 c turbinado or coarse sugar.

Add 2 t vanilla extract and one egg and beat for two minutes.

Add 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour, 1/2 t salt and 1/2 t baking soda.

Scoop dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and roll in additional granulated sugar. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven when the tops are cracking (the tops will not brown).

Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.
