Recipe for Kimbo's Cookies

Here's the second of this month's tips for those of you who want to try your hand at making decorated cookies. I'm sharing my cookie recipe, but I'll never share my royal icing recipe. It's what makes Kimbo's Cookies truly spectacular, and I have to keep SOME things to myself, right? :)

Here we go. It's super simple.

Kimbo's Cookies

Cream together:

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup butter or margarine (I use Golden Soft)
1/2 Tbl. vanilla (real is best)
1/2 Tbl. butter flavoring

Stir in:

3 1/2 cups flour

Chill until firm - at least 3 hours. I always bake at 325 instead of the typical 350, and I don't set a timer. I take them out when the tops are "dry" to the touch. It's just a thing with me. It works best for my purposes, but if you're more comfortable using a timer, I'd set it for about 6 minutes and then check the tops. I've found that the "until the edges are golden brown" guideline leaves the cookies too hard. I like them on the soft side.

There you go! Let me know if you have any questions. :)
