Food Corner: Vanilla Cookies

Usually, I only present you with short descriptions for the food corner. Today, however, I have something special in store for you: A very easy cookie recipe.

You will need:

  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose) / 250 g wheat flower
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar / 75 g sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla powder / 2 pouches vanilla powder (16 g)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg (medium)
  • 1/2 cup softened butter (unsalted) / 125 g softened butter or margarine

Time: about 40 min.
Difficulty: Easy

  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180-200 °C depending on your oven).
  • Lightly grease baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.

Sift flour into a bowl. Add all other ingredients. Stir until the dough is smooth. Take some of the dough, roll out to about 1/4-1/3 inch thick (about 1/2 cm; depending on the crunchiness you prefer). Cut out cookies with shapes/cookie cutters, and place cookies on your baking sheet. Bake for about 9 min.
If desired, decorate the cookies with melted chocolate.

Yield varies on how thick/thin you roll the dough and the size of your cookie cutters.

I use this recipe all the time with my students, and they really like the cookies.
