Chewy Sugar Cookie Recipe
These Chewy Sugar Cookies are SO yummy! A hint of almond extract and a bit of glaze makes these cookies irresistible!
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter softened (not melted)
- 2 tbsp butter flavored shortening
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp light corn syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In your mixer, cream sugar, butter, shortening, and salt until light and fluffy.
Add egg, corn syrup, vanilla and almond extract and beat until well mixed.
In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add to wet ingredients.
Scoop (I use the cookie scoop tool) and roll into balls. Pat down balls a bit. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool until warm.
Make almond frosting: Mix 1 cup powdered sugar, ½ tsp. almond extract and a few tablespoons of milk (until it's the consistency you want).
Drizzle frosting over warm cookies. Add sprinkles if desired.
