Old Fashion Sugar Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (2 sticks), softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • Sanding sugar, for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl; set aside.
  2. Put sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  3. Mix on medium speed 30 seconds. Add butter; mix until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  4. Mix in eggs, 1 at a time. Reduce speed; gradually add flour mixture, and mix until just combined.
  5. Scoop dough using a 2-inch ice cream scoop; space cookies 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  6. Flatten cookies slightly with a spatula. Sprinkle tops with sanding sugar, then lightly brush with a wet pastry brush; sprinkle with more sanding sugar.
  7. Bake cookies until golden, about 15 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks using a spatula; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
