Basic Cookies dough

In a large mixing bowl, beat 1 sticks of soften unsalted butter, using electric mixer beat for about 30 seconds, add 1 cup of granulated sugar and until until smooth, but not creamy.

Beat in 1 egg and 2 tablespoon of vanilla or almond extract, add 3 cups of unsifted flour.  1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and 3/4 teaspoon of salt to butter mixture and beat on medium until smooth.

If the dough is sticky which often happens, do not be afraid to add more flour.  Once the dough feels comfortable between your hands, form into 2 balls, and wrap each and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

This is a great basic cookie dough recipe.  Nice for a night of baking with the kids or for any basic cookie.

Use for candy cane cookies and more!
