Baking My Way: Basic Refrigerator Cookies

Not my favorite of this challenge but they would make a good base recipe for adding any sort of goodies you want.

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped nuts

In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended, scraping bowl occasionally. On low speed, beat in flour, baking powder and salt until well combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in nuts.

Divide dough into 3 equal parts; shape each into roll 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Heat oven to 425°F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices; place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.

Make your own-do-ahead dough. Cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 6 weeks. When you want, slice and bake the frozen dough as directed in the recipe.


  1. The cookies look yummy! Can't wait to try them.

  2. These could be handy to make up ahead. What didn't you like about them? Just curious since I haven't made this recipe before.

    I am visiting from Friday Favorite Finds.

  3. i just thought they were pretty plain is all. if they had butter cream icing (which i tried) they would be great!


Thanks for your comments and feedback! I enjoy reading each one :)
