If you wish to make these cookies flavored with chocolate, you can add cocoa powder or dark chocolate chips to the recipe. This recipe is not about adhering to the flavors but changing them up depending on your preference. That is why it is a good foundational recipe to build up further. You can add lemon or orange zest to the dough to give it a refreshing citrus flavour. You can add cinnamon, coconut flakes, honey or a hint of almond extract for a nutty aftertaste. You can even brown the butter, use a cookie butter or add cream cheese to get the gingerbread taste in the cookies. For special events like birthday parties, you can add sprinkles on top or try adding marshmallows coated in chocolate to make it look exciting and fun. There is so much you can do with this wonderful recipe for easy cookies. If you fancy soft texture to these cookies, bake them exactly for about 10-12 minutes roughly. If you like this soft sugar cookies recipe a bit crispy, then you may have to bake them a few minutes longer than just 12 minutes and wait until they turn dark brownish along the edges.

Just remember if you are not able to get the butter vanilla emulsion for this recipe, you can just replace it with a pure vanilla extract. Do not by any means use an artificial vanilla flavor because that is the last thing you want to add to a perfect butter cookies recipe. An important baking tip that will go a long way in baking goods is to use a premium quality vanilla extract which is more than a flavour enhancer. The role of a pure vanilla extract in baking goods is known for binding the ingredients just like salt when added to baking recipes. You can rely on leading brands like Nielsen-Massey or Madagascar with no corn syrup, sugar or other fillers and additives. You can save these yummy cookies at room temperature for up to a week in a sealed jar. Make sure to put the dough 2 inches apart on the baking sheet before you put them in the oven, as the dough tends to spread a tiny bit while baking. Always chill the dough for a few hours if you want the cookies to hold the shape and texture. Don’t bake them right away after mixing because the cookies could come out rather flat.
