Recipe inspiration: Make It Yours™ Cookie Recipe
1 cup (2 Sticks) Country Crock® Buttery Sticks
1 to 2 cups of your choice of mix-ins
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
(makes approximately 4 dozen cookies)
Preheat oven to 375°. Mix Country Crock® Buttery Sticks, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg, egg yolk and vanilla in large bowl until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda until blended. Add mix-ins (such as chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts, dried fruit, etc) into the dough to Make it Yours™ until every spoonful of dough has some of the mix-ins. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls of un-greased baking sheets 3-inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.
