3 cups of pastry flour. I prefer the finer flour as it makes a lighter cookie.
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, not that margarine plastic stuff.
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 baking powder
nuts, dried fruit as you like.
Secret ingredient, a tablespoon or so of honey. I think it adds a great taste to the cookie.
Heat oven to 375 and line your pans with parchment paper. Makes clean up real easy.
Combine the soft butter and sugar together till its nice and creamy. Then add vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, honey, and egg. stir together well. Mix in the flour in a cup at a time till well mixed. Add any nuts or fruit and your ready to bake.
I use a melon baller to scoop out my dough and put it on my pans. It helps make them all an even size. Bake for 10 min. Cool on a rack or just paper towels like I do.
