The Ultimate Cookie Dough Recipe
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 11 mins
Total time: 31 mins
Serves: 18
  1. Cream the butter in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the eggs and the vanilla.
  3. Add the sugar and continue to combine.
  4. Add the flour one cup at a time.
  5. Add the salt.
  6. Add the baking powder and remember, you must measure this one exactly for your cookie dough to rise and to taste great.
  7. For the final cup of flour, add it in slowly until the cookie dough begins to pull away from the side of the bowl.
  8. Place a piece of parchment on your counter and tip the mixture onto the parchment.
  9. Knead the cookie dough for a few minutes.
  10. Then wrap it up tightly and store in the fridge for an hour.
  11. After an hour, take it out and add a generous heap of flour and knead it together until it's pliable like playdough. If it's still sticky, keep adding flour until it feels ready to roll.
  12. Roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick and cut into desired shapes.
  13. Bake it for about ten minutes. I prefer them to be undercooked and 'bendable' rather than jaw breakers.
  14. When they are ready, remove them from the baking tray and set aside to cool.
