Week 35: Sugardoodle Cookies

So this week, I wanted to try something different, and this recipe seemed to fit the bill. Also, one of my co-workers said that last week’s cookies were the worst cookies I’ve made this year. I think it was because I used the wrong type of maple syrup, which can honestly make all the difference.

Anyways, onto this week’s recipe. This is a recipe that is very simple to make and requires no planning ahead. I say that because I always have unsalted butter at room temperature ready for baking at all times.

Personally, I feel like this recipe has too much butter in it because the cookies come out a lot flatter than how they look in the recipe. The recipe has them looking like they’re a little thick, but these cookies with that amount of butter come out much flatter. I will have to try making this recipe with less butter and see what happens. I even adjusted the baking time, and it had no effect.

The good news is that they’re tasty, so at least there’s flavor despite how flat they come out.

Flat cookies!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add both sugars and mix until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.
  3. Next, add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Form balls with about 2 tbsp of dough. Place about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 350°F until lightly browned on bottom and around edges, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).
