GIANT Sugar Cookies! Easy and Delicious! It is so nice to have really good treats on hand!
3 C. flour
1 t. soda
1/4 t. kosher salt
1 3/4 C. sugar
1/4 C. packed brown sugar
2 sticks (1 C.) soft butter
2 large eggs
1 1/2 t. pure vanilla extract
2-3 T. dark natural sugar or your choice of sugar for tops
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with parchment or use silpat mats. Set aside.
Sift together the flour, soda, and salt and set aside.
Place the butter, and sugars, and vanilla in a mixer bowl and beat until fluffy. Brat in eggs one at a time until pale. Reduce the mixer speed to lowest setting and add the dry ingredients.
Drop dough onto prepare pans using a 2" ice cream scoop leaving 3" between the cookies. Flatten slightly and sprinkle with sugar. Use a pastry brush dipped in water and brush the cookie tops. Sprinkle a second time with sugar. Bake until golden about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pans a few minutes before removing to cooling racks. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Trust me they will not be around that long!
