Fresh from the Farm Recipe Swap #5 with a chewy slice and bake sugar cookie!

I hope this post finds you all happy and well. :) Welcome to Fresh from the Farm Recipe Swap!! I know many of you out there have begun your Christmas baking....please share with us!!! After our youngest sons illness we are trying to move on to our happy normal route of things. It has been tough but he is getting better and I thank all of you for your prayers.
Don't forget to come back on Friday and join in my Farm Photo Friday Linky Party!!! Share your pictures, friends. :) Play along....have some fun!!! Make new friends!


**Remember to LINK BACK TO MY BLOG....if you don't link back to me it defeats the purpose of a recipe swap as others cannot get here to share or see what others have shared. If you don't know how to link back....leave me a comment or send me an email. I will help you!! :)

I saw these cookies on Pinterest awhile back and pinned them to try. I thought they looked simple to make and would be yummy too. I love a chewy cookie....so these fit the bill!




Ingredients you will need:
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
In a large bowl, whip butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in egg and vanilla. Scrape sides and mix again. Stir in dry ingredients until completely combined.

Divide dough into two equal logs {whatever size you desire} and roll in plastic wrap. You can now roll the logs more until you get them nice and circular.

Refrigerate for an hour or until the dough hardens.

When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap the logs of cookie dough and slice into 1/2 inch discs.

Place on prepared baking sheet and bake 9-10 minutes or until bottoms are barely brown. I decided to sprinkle a little colored sugar on each disc just to make them look a tad bit more festive!! ;)


Remove from oven, cool 3 minutes and remove to a cooling rack. They must be good because I just noticed that the rows of cookies are getting shorter and shorter! ;)
