After two weeks of wining and dining here in Paris and Lyon, I’m yearning for the basics-you know; things like butter, sugar, eggs and flour. With Christmas coming, try these sugar cookies. They are easy to make and go well with any Taft Street wine.
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1cup softened butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375
- In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and soda. Set aside.
- Cream the butter and sugar, then incorporate the egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and stir until smooth.
- Form into ping pong sized circles and place on ungreased baking pan.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden. Let rest a couple of minutes and enjoy one of the simpler pleasures of life!
