4 dozen cookies (standard size
Level:
Intermediate

Ingredients
  • 2 cups salted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons whipping cream (or whole milk)
  • 4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 6 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
Directions
  • Combine butter and sugar. Do not take this mixture to a "light cream." Think "incorporate" ? not "cream." Just make sure the mixture is smooth ? no butter lumps.

  • In a small bowl mix egg, milk/cream, and extracts. Add this mixture all at once to the butter and sugar. Mix just until the egg is broken. The mixture will "curdle" but that's not a problem.

  • In another small bowl, mix the flour and baking powder. Add these dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients in the mixing bowl. Process to form dough.

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. It's just that simple! The beauty of this dough is that it does not need to chill before using it. Simply flour a work surface. Knead the dough a few times to smooth it out and with a rolling pin, roll dough. Cut into desired shapes. The dough scraps can be used several times. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
