Basic Sugar Cookies



Basic Sugar Cookies
Recipe by Peggy Porschen
Modified by me

Makes about 30 cookies
1 3/4 sticks (200 gr) unsalted butter
1 cup (150 gr)  castor sugar
1 extra large egg, lightly beaten (about 60 gr without skin)
3 cups (330 gr) plain flour ( add +/- 75 gr)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp corn flour
1/2 tbsp milk powder

Optional Flavors :

for vanilla cookies, add seeds from 1 vanilla bean
for lemon cookies, add finely grated zest of 1 lemon
for orange cookies, add finely grated zest of 1 orange
for chocolate cookies, replace scant 1/2 cup( 60 gr) of the plain flour with scant 1/2 cup ( 60 gr)unsweetened cocoa pwd

Method :
Cream the butter with the sugar and chosen flavouring until well mixed and just creamy in texture. Do not overwork, or the cookies will spread during baking.

Beat in the egg untill well combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until a dough forms.
Place the dough on a floured surface and knead briefly.

Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. I roll my cookie direct on parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 170C - 180 C. Bake for about 10 to 12 min until golden brown at the edges. Let cool on a wire rack.
