Happy Friday! I really don’t have a whole lot planned for my weekend…just keeping things low key. Well, actually, I’m trying to sell my car and hopefully get a better one soon. I’m looking for good gas mileage and reliability! Of course this car drama all has to happen without my husband here….cause I’m so auto savvy. HA! This is so typical for me! This is always how life seems to work itself out! Geeze. I’ll keep you posted, so no worries!
So here I have for you one of my new favorite recipes. These cookies are easy to make in advance, fast to whip up, not to mention chewy, sweet and delicious. Like I said, one of my favorites! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE chewy cookies as opposed to crunchy ones. Don’t get me wrong, I like all cookies, I just have a special place in my heart for chewy ones. These will not disappoint! Promise!
And, thankfully I had two little helpers in the kitchen when I made them! My munchkin and her little cousin baked the morning away for some well earned afternoon treats! Scroll down to see all the fun we had in the kitchen! Make these this weekend with your kids!
Slice N' Bake Chewy Sugar Cookies
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until well incorporated. Add in egg and vanilla and stir.
- Mix in all dry ingredients until cookie dough forms. Scrape the sides well to ensure everything is well mixed. Spoon dough onto a long piece of plastic wrap into a 10-12 inch log. Fold plastic wrap over dough and create a smooth log. Refrigerate 1 hour to overnight.
- To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Unwrap dough log and slice into 1/3-1/2-inch slices. Place onto prepared sheets and bake 8-9 minutes until barely golden. Remove from oven and cool 3-5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
