Vanilla Butter Cookies

Am still testing few cookie recipes hoping to find 1 that will work. Tonite, am testing on this recipe from Cookie baker Lynn's blog. However, am not sure if it's due to weather or temp (even though I have alrdy lower d temp), d batter spread out too fast d moment it's popped into d oven. Thus, most of d cookies' edge were burned badly.
End result, cookies were all very flatted & brown in color ;-( looks nothing near to what d original looks like at all! Guess I shd consider this a failure, right? Sigh…

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/6 tsp baking powder
  • 110g unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg
  1. Preheat to 160C.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour/salt/baking powder until well mixed.
  3. In another bowl beat butter till smooth be4 adding sugar & vanilla extract. Continue beating for abt 2 mins until mixture is well combined.
  4. Add eggs & beat until well mixed.
  5. Then add flour mixture & mix just until blended.
  6. Scoop ard 1 tbsp of batter & put them abt 3 inches apart on cookie sheets. d batter will spread out as it bakes.
  7. Bake two sheets at a time for 8-10 mins, or till d edges turn golden brown.
  8. Move sheets onto cooling racks & let cool for 5 mins be4 transferring cookies to d racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter on cooled cookie sheets.
