Do you remember the warm & delicious Lane Tech Cafeteria Sugar Cookies?
The Class of 1985 remembers huddling around cafeteria tables eating these delicious cookies. These cookies brought back so many great memories that the 1985 30th Reunion Committee sought out to re-create the cookies for the reunion. Recipe submitted by Ginamarie Salinaz Yacoub ('85) 2 cups of unsalted butter 1 1/2 cups of sugar 1/4 teaspoon of salt 3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Cream butter with mixer until light and fluffy. Add sugar and salt and beat until no longer grainy. Gradually add flour a little at a time, beating at low speed until dough forms.
Form dough into balls, one heaping tablespoon= 1 ball. Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet spaced widely- about 9 per sheet.
Put 1/4 cup of sugar on a saucer. Press first 3 fingers into sugar then press down on ball to flatten to a 3 inch circle wide and 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until faintly browned around the edges.
