Chewy Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies...part 2.  If you read the post on Soft Sugar Cookies, then you know sugar cookies are my least favorite cookie.  However, since several of my family members love them, I decided to try to find a recipe that I too will enjoy.  Soft, chewy or a combination of the two are my favorite textures for cookies, so that's what I set out to achieve...the perfect sugar cookie. 

While I really liked the soft sugar cookies, I think I like this chewy version even better from  Not only did I like the texture, but the flavor was really good as well.  This recipe may be "THE one"....

Chewy Sugar Cookies (slightly adapted from

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1½ cups sugar
1 egg
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tbsp sugar for rolling cookies

Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray two cookie sheets with cooking spray and set aside.  In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg & vanilla and mix until well combined.  Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.

Scoop dough into an overly rounded tablespoon full and roll into a ball.  Place sugar in a bowl and place each ball of cookie dough into the bowl and roll to coat on all sides. Place onto baking sheet, about 1½-inches to 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Makes 24 cookies.
