I just finished baking a batch of sugar cookies!! And they're not bad, too ^__^ James came downstairs when the last tray was in the oven, and he took one of the cooled ones to try. Then he took a warm one. Then he took another one from the last tray (just out of the oven). I didn't keep track of how many he ate, but I think he took at least 8 cookies in the 10 minutes we were talking! Glad to know my cookies are addictive :P
Anyway, just thought I'd post the recipe (so I don't lose it lol):
-Cream 225g of butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar till smooth.
-Beat in 1 egg and 1tsp vanilla extract. I added abit more vanilla.
-Add in 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1tsp baking soda.
-Gradually mix in 2 3/4 cups flour (I did this in batches of 1/2 cups and one 3/4 cup).
-Roll into balls and place on a greased tray.
-Bake for 9-11mins in an 190C oven.
In the website I got it from, the recipe originally said about 8-10mins and the reviewers said 8mins is good for chewy cookies, but I like mine crunchier, so I put them in for about 11mins each tray. Also, just a little warning - these cookies are really really sweet, so if you're baking them for people who don't have a very sweet tooth, I recommend leaving out 1/4 to 1/3 cups of sugar.
Okay, I went out in kimono today. I'm lazy to write about it now so I'll post about it tomorrow. Bye!
