Simple Sugar Cookies



Dough:
3 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. unsalted butter
1 1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large egg

Topping:
3/4 c. granulated sugar, for dredging

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease two baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.

For the dough, in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and cream cheese until light and fluffy.

Beat in vanilla extract and egg; scrape sides and bottom of bowl.

Add flour mixture, and mix at low to medium speed until mixture is evenly moistened.

For the topping, place sugar in a large plastic bag or in a shallow pan. Scoop dough by tablespoonfuls into sugar, rolling them in pan or gently shaking in bag to coat.

Place on prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between them. Using a flat-bottomed glass, flatten cookies to about 1/4-inch thickness.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes (less time for softer cookies, more time for crunchier).

Remove from oven, and cool on pans for 5 minutes, before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Yield: about 4 dozen cookies
