Oh my…is all I can say about these cookies! They are fabulous! The minute I tasted them it took me back to the days when I was a little kid entering a bakery for the first time. When I read about them over at Sandra’s Blog…Full Belly, Happy Kids…I was intrigued.  The recipe is so simple and easy that even a novice to baking can make these. My daughter wanted in on the action as soon as she saw me whip out the flour and sugar 🙂
This is what you will need (one sweet little girl included):

1 stick of butter or 1/2 cup (softened), 1 cup of flour (in the picture it has Self Rising, but we had some all purpose flour so I used AP), 5 tbsp. of sugar…plus a tad bit more to roll the balls of dough in, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract or almond extract.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Stir until well mixed.  It will be a little crumbly.

Shape into round balls and roll each ball into the bowl of sugar…making sure to coat all around.  Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminium foil.
Take a fork and make mish-mash markings in each cookie (she LOVED this part).

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies start to brown. Let them cool for 2 minutes before serving. These are GREAT with a glass of cold milk 🙂
