Does anyone know any basic cookie recipes?

I’m making some cookies for a Halloween party but can’t find a basic cookie recipe. Does anyone know any?

    These are best glazed and then sprinkled with colored sugar after they cool. The dough can also be used to make Thumbprint cookies. You will need a strong mixer – a KitchenAid helps, but you can always knead in the rest of the flour. The dough does not spread or distort – they can be baked fairly close together and can be shipped or transported without breaking.

    1 cup (2 sticks) butter (do NOT use oleo or spread)
    ½ cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    3 cups sifted all purpose flour
    ½ tsp baking powder

    Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy.
    Add egg and vanilla extract.
    Add flour and baking powder.
    Mix until mixture clings together.
    Gather into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate one hour.

    Roll out between ¼ and 1/2 inch thick. Bake 5 to 6 minutes at 375F. Do not let the cookies brown.

    Cool on wire rack before glazing or frosting.

    Glaze: With a fork, mash together 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon powdered sugar until a fine paste. Add a few drops of milk. Continue adding powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency is achieved. Add 2 drops of almond or vanilla extract.

    Yield: about 1 cup glaze

    Basic Butter Cookie Dough

    Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.
    Yield: Makes about 3 pounds dough
    4 sticks (1 pound) unsalted butter, softened
    1 1/3 cups sugar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    3 large egg yolks
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    4 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

    In large bowl of a standing electric mixer beat together butter, sugar, and salt until light and fluffy. Beat in yolks, 1 at a time, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Beat in flour gradually, beating dough until just combined well.

    I have a fabulous one from a friend in England. It’s a shortbread-like cookie, but SUPER easy to make! It’s so yummy!

    225g butter, at room temperature (1 1/2 sticks)
    110g sugar (just over a half cup)
    275g flour (2 1/4 cups)

    You can add almost anything to this recipe….chocolate chips, orange, lemon, or lime zest, poppy seeds, ginger, cranberries, raisins, you name it!

    Preheat the oven to 170C/gas 3. ( I put the oven temperature at 325F)

    2. Cream the butter in a large bowl or in a food mixer until soft and creamy. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is pale and fluffy.

    3. Sift in the flour and spices or grated zest (if using) and bring the mixture together to form a firm dough.

    4. Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and place them slightly apart on a baking tray (no need to grease or line). Flatten them slightly with the back of a damp fork and bake in the oven for 13–15 minutes, or until they are light golden brown and slightly firm on top.

    5. Carefully transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

    These are so good with a cup of tea…..and quick to make! ?
