Pound Cake Cookies
¾ Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Salted Sweet Cream Butter, Softened
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Cream sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Whisk flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into creamed butter mixture until just combined. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter-flour mixture until dough is thoroughly mixed; stir in extract. Drop small scoops of dough onto a baking sheet. If dough is too stiff blend in 1 tablespoon warm water, or as needs to correct.
Bake in the preheated oven until cookies spring back when touched, 10 to 12 minutes.
Variation: semi-homemade. (Cake Mix Cookies Use Butter Cake Mix) Substitute one box of butter cake mix for dry ingredients. Still use one cup of butter and vanilla or rum extract. And follow the directions above to complete.
