Classic Cookie Dough

1 cup 2 sticks Compliments Churned Unsalted Butter Sticks, room temperature 250 mL

1 cup sugar 250 mL

1 tbsp Sensations by Compliments Pure Vanilla Extract 15 mL

1/4 tsp salt 1 mL

1 egg, room temperature

2 1/2 cups Compliments All Purpose Flour 625 mL


1. Using an electric mixer (stand or hand-held), cream together butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth, about 3 min. Scrape down sides of bowl, add egg and mix well. Scrape down sides of bowl again, slowly add flour and mix until a soft dough forms. Dust hands with flour and, in bowl, knead dough by hand until smooth. Prep different cookies based on instructions on following pages.


1. Refrigerate, about 20 min. Dust a piece of parchment paper with flour, place dough in centre, dust top of dough with flour and cover with another sheet of parchment paper. Roll dough to about a 1/4-in. (5 mm) thickness. Remove top sheet of parchment (use it to line your baking sheet).


1. Cut into 1 x 2-in. (2.5 x 5 cm) bars or use cookie cutters to cut into other fun shapes, then place on prepared cookie sheet, spaced about 1 in. (2.5 cm) apart.


1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and bake on middle rack until set, 10 to 12 min. Let cool completely before decorating.
