Recipe: Sugar Cookies

through trial and error, I finally (!) found the right recipe measurements for chewy sugar cookies that  held their texture even after cooling
you will need...

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar 
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla (or almond) extract (I add 1/2 a teaspoon more to personal taste)
2 and 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

cream butter and sugar until fluffy 
add egg and extract until well combined
slowly add dry ingredients and mix until dough forms

drop onto (I used a 1 ounce scoop) a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, turning the pan halfway (please keep in mind that oven temperatures/times vary)
and enjoy- happy baking!
