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!


  • 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


  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).
