The Softest, Sweetest Butter Cookies Ever

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to the week! 

Today I wanted to share with you a recipe that I found recently that falls about in the top
two cookie recipes I have EVER tried!  It is for amazing butter cookies.... so sweet,
and the most perfect, soft, chewy cookies ever. 
They never got even slightly hard.

Before I go on, I should probably warn you that if you bake these there is a good
chance that you might just stand by the cookie jar all day long eating cookie after cookie after delicious cookie and still be looking for more.  Not that that happened to me ;)

These cookies were so amazingly good on their own, but I had a little bit of this pretty
purple frosting (I LOVE purple!) and sprinkles left in the fridge from when I baked
sugar cookies.  I was so excited to use my "froster" with the star tip that I got
this weekend at Hobby Lobby  and had fun doing some simple decorations
 on the cookies to make them cheerful and bright.

I always love how cakes or cookies or anything looks inside this cake platter.
It's been in our family for a long time and I hope it will become an heirloom to pass down.
It reminds me of something in an old diner that might have a pie under it or something.

Now to the recipe!
I do not take credit for it.  It is from Robyn from Add A Pinch.
She is a Southern wife and mother and shares the most delicious recipes.
Every one I have tried has come out so great.

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar well, then add and beat in egg.
Gradually spoon in flour mixture until it is mixed in well.
Add in vanilla.

Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes.
(It may have just been my oven, but mine took 15 minutes)

Writing about this recipe is making me want to go make another batch
right this minute.  These cookies are simply wonderful.
I was so excited to find this recipe, and even more excited about how it turned out.

I hope you'll try it! 

Happy baking!

Blessings :)

    Hey, the other day I made some cookies called, Southern Tea Cakes. They turned out really good!
    Have you ever made them before? Or any of the like?

    1. Hi Malory,

  2. Hi Jazzmin, These cookies sound/look so good. I love purple/lavender, too. Your new tool from Hobby Lobby does a great job. How very special the lovely cake cover is. It reminds me of something you would have seen at the diner on the Andy Griffith show!
    Wishing you a wonderful week. It was 70 and sunny in Georgia today! This time last week, we had snow! Mildred

    1. Hi Mildred,
      Thank you for your commenting :) It is always nice to read them. And yes, I was really excited to use the new froster from Hobby Lobby and had fun doing designs. I was surprised at how well it did. I love what you said about the cake cover! I agree.
      I know you have snow again in your post I read today, so I hope you're staying warm!

      Blessings to you!

    1. Hi Stephanie,
      I don't blame your husband!! Hehe, butter cookies, in my opinion, are just a little bit more addicting than other cookies. Especially this recipe. I hope if you get a chance to make it that you will all enjoy them :)
