Cookie Dough

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 & ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour


  • 1 tablespoon sugar + 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, using mixer, cream together butter and sugar until pale and light.
  • And in salt, egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
  • Add in flour and stir until no streaks of dry ingredients remain.
  • Scoop thick dough into prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer.
  • Stir together remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle dough evenly with cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, until bars are set and the edges are just very lightly browned. Don't overbake! You want the cookies to be soft and moist.
  • Cool in the pan before slicing.
  • Store in sealed container to stay fresh! Bet they won't last long! :)
