One Dough, Sooo Many Cookies

With a few quick additions to a basic dough, you can have a cookie-swap sized assortment of tasty treats in no time!


Mother Dough

This recipe makes enough for two batches of cookies, so we suggest that you always divide the dough in half and wrap each separately.
Ingredients:

• 2 cups flour
• ½ tsp baking powder
• ¼ tsp salt
• pinch ground nutmeg
• 1 cup butter
• 1 cup packed brown sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

1. Combine first four ingredients in a bowl.
2. Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla.

3. Mix in half the dry ingredients, then add what is remaining.
4. Divide dough in half and wrap with plastic wrap until ready to use.
