Cookie Swap: 'Double Chins' from Grace Neltner

Double Chins

Submitted by Grace Neltner

 The name for these butter cookies was given by Grace's sister, Lyn, because you cannot stop eating these delicious cookies and they cause double-chins.

Ingredients:

1 cup of salted butter, softened

3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar at medium speed with electric mixer.   Mix in vanilla.  Gradually add flour, beating thoroughly at low speed. 

Shape a level teaspoon of dough into a ball, press down lightly, and place on ungreased cookie sheet 2" apart.  Bake 17-19 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown.

When cookies are cooled, ice with Buttercream Icing.  See recipe below.
