Chewy Sugar Cookies
These are great sugar cookies. I am not usually a huge sugar cookie fan. But, these are an exception. These are hands down, the best sugar cookies I have ever had.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease 2 or 3 cookie sheets.
3/4 cup(1-1/2 sticks) unsalted softened butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
In a large mixing bowl beat the sugars, butter, corn syrup, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and egg.
Stir in the flour.
Using a medium size cookie scoop, drop cookies onto the prepared sheets. Use a spoon if you don't have a scoop..
Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. The edges will just start to brown. They will look soft though.
Take them out of the oven and leave them on the sheets for 5 minutes to finish cooking.
Transfer to a rack to cool.
You will get 2-1/2 to 3 dozen cookies.
These are great frosted with simple cookie glaze.
