Stand mixer Sunday: Sugar cookies

Alas, I didn't eat these. I made them for a lovely coworker who picked up a Friday night shift for me. Totally deserving of something tasty.

I've been wanting to make some sugar cookies for a while so I can start testing recipes pre-holiday. This recipe was a real winner and the coworkers loved it.

Here's what you need:

2 and 3/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 sticks butter, room temp

1 and 1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Using the flat mixing attachment of mixer, cream the butter and sugar (until it's incorporated and yellowish). Add the egg on low speed, then the vanilla extract, soda and powder. Add the flour one cup at a time until you have a crumbly sort of dough.

Form the dough into large spoonfuls (there should be about 20, depending on how big you make it). Bake in a 375-degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges. Pull from the oven and immediately dust with sugar, then remove to cool.
