I feel dumb… and embarrassed… and ashamed. I made the oldest baking mistake in the Betty Crocker cookbook. The recipe called for 4 ½ tsp of baking powder. I used 4 ½ tsp of baking soda. But let’s back track a little….
My work was having a holiday bake sale last week and I wanted to contribute a few items. I decided to try out this sugar cookie recipe that Grace had pinned from What Megan’s Making.

The weird thing is, that the uncooked dough tasted delicious! I guess chemistry is not my strong suit.
Anyway, I had to scrap them and start all over. Here’s how my second batch came out…
Beat together the butter & sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time then add vanilla.
Mix in dry ingredients. Cover and chill for an hour.
Scoop a quarter cup amount and roll into a ball and flatten slightly. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Allow to cool and frost. I ran out of confectioner’s sugar so I had to just use the store bought frosting.
The Verdict: I don’t really like sugar cookies that much but these were really good. I liked how they were a bit puffier then a normal sugar cookie. They sold out at the bake sale so that’s always a good sign.
Things to Note/Consider: read the directions carefully!
Since these were going to a bake sale, I bagged three together to make it easier to sell.
Unfortunately I didn’t have red or green ribbon but I still think they are cute.
