Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Soft and Chewy Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Perfect vanilla cookies to enjoy with milk, frosting or just on their own. They melt in your mouth and make you crave more.

Vanilla Sugar Cookies Recipe

Vanilla Sugar Cookies


1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 large egg, room temperature

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


In a medium bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla extract, mix until well combined.

In a separate bowl mix together flour and baking soda. Slowly start adding flour mixture to the eggs in several batches mixing until combined after each addition.

Cover the bowl with the dough with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to cool for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.

Take out the chilled dough and roll it out with a rolling-pin on the lightly floured working area. Cut cookies in your favorite shapes depending what cookie cutters you have or want to use. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets placing them about 1 inch apart or so.

Bake cookies at 350F.  If you like your cookies more soft and chewy bake for about 8 to 10 minutes. Or if you like your cookies more crisp and buttery, then bake them for 10 to 12 minutes.

Cool cookies on the wire rack before serving. They are great both warm and cold. And if you like frosting on your cookies they will go perfect with it or with some sugar icing, just cool cookies completely before frosting them.

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Make it a Perfect Breakfast or Lunch!

French toast, also known as eggy bread or gypsy toast, is a dish of bread soaked in beaten eggs and then fried.

When French toast is served as a sweet dish, milk, sugar, vanilla or cinnamon are also commonly added before pan-frying, and then it may be topped with sugar (often powdered sugar), butter, fruit, or syrup. When it is a savory dish, it is generally fried with a pinch of salt, and can then be served with a sauce such as ketchup or mayonnaise.

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast

Warm Maple and Raisins French Toast


2 tablespoons sunflower oil

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

10 slices of bread (makes 5 servings, 2 slices per serving)

1/2 cup raisins (for serving)

Maple Syrup (for serving)


In a large bowl whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla extract. After the eggs are well beaten add in milk. Whisk until well combined.

In a 10 inch or 12 inch skillet, add 1 tablespoon sunflower oil and heat it over medium heat. Dip bread in egg mixture. Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side.

Depending on your skillet and bread slices you may have 2 batches. After the first batch is done, lower the heat and add remaining tablespoon of oil and repeat the process by dipping the bread in egg and frying it until golden brown on both sides. Divide French Toast in serving plates.

In a small saucepan heat maple syrup and raisins over low heat. You don’t want the syrup to bubble, but rather get warm and less thick. When heated pour the syrup and raisins over the French Toast and enjoy right away with milk, coffee or drink of choice.

Like mentioned above, this recipe makes 5 servings (2 slices per serving).
