Easiest Sugar Cookies
adapted from allrecipes.com
2 3/4 unbleached, organic flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup apple sauce, unsweetened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon homemade vanilla extract
Frosting: Marshmallow Creme (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
To be totally honest, I put all of the ingredients into 1 bowl and mixed thoroughly. The cookies turned out great and I didn't have to dirty more dishes. These cookies are delicious plain or with marshmallow creme. I thought about adding unsweetened cocoa to the marshmallow creme...Maybe next time!
