Foodie Byte: If you forget to soften your butter and are in a hurry, you can microwave it but don't melt it--that will change the consistency of the cookie. Just do 10 seconds at a time to soften.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream sugar with butter.
  3. Add egg and vanilla.
  4. Mix in remainder of ingredients.
  5. Drop onto cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes.
