  • Summary

    This is my favorite chewy sugar cookie. My friends say they taste like the cookies from Potbelly when I use McCormick Vanilla, Butter & Nut Extract

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/4 cups (11 1/4 oz) all-purpose flour (I used unbleached)
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder, Rumford is my favorite
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 cups (10 1/2 oz) granulated sugar
    • 2 oz cream cheese, cut into about 8 pieces
    • 6 tablespoons of butter
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil, canola or flavorless
    • 1 large egg at room temperature
    • A tablespoon of whole milk (I have forgotten this on occasion)
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons of good vanilla extract
    • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of McCormick vanilla & butternut extract or Watkins Vanilla Nut (or another brand if you know of one)
    • Extra sugar for putting on top OR colored sugar
