Butter Ridge Cookies
30 minutes to prepare 2 dozen
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350º F and line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or with parchment paper.
In a large bowl or mixer, cream together butter and sugar for 3 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
Add vanilla extract and mix until incorporated, then, working in batches, add in flour until mixture is smooth.
Use a tablespoon or small scooper to scoop dough into balls and transfer to lined baking sheets.
Once on baking sheets, use your middle three fingers to gently press down on the dough, creating two ridges along the tops of the cookies. Cookies should be roughly 1/4-inch thick.
Place baking sheets in oven and bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges of cookies are just golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
