These are so delicious and they taste like store bought. The best part is you only need three ingredients and most likely already have them in your kitchen.


  • 2 cups (2 sticks) Room temperature unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour

[Optional: Toppers – I like almonds and raisins. You can use anything you like such as sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc.]


  1. Preheat your oven to 325˚F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter using an electric mixer until it turns white.
  3. Add sugar and continue mixing until it’s smooth and creamy.
  4. Put in a portion of the flour (I like to put in 1/2 cups or 2/3 cups at a time) and slowly incorporate it into the mix with a spatula.
  5. Using a small ice cream scooper, scoop the dough and roll into a ball in your palm. If you don’t have a small ice cream scooper, use your hands and  scoop walnut-size pieces of dough. Place cookies 2-3 inches apart one another on baking sheet.
  6. Using your palm or back of a spoon, flatten the cookies slightly. The cookies will spread just a little bit when baking, so you don’t want to flatten them very thin (the bottom side may burn).
  7. [Optional: Toppers] If you are adding toppers, make a dent in the center of each cookie using your finger and place your topper.
  8. Bake for 12 to 18 minutes. Check often, the cookies are done when it’s lightly golden around the edges.
  9. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet to cool before removing.
  10. Enjoy!!!
