Soft Butter Cookies Recipe: 06 Outstanding Serving Ideas

Soft Butter Cookies Recipe is a yummy, simple, easy recipe that takes only a few minutes to create. These soft butter cookies come together quickly with just four simple ingredients.

This recipe is a great way to use leftover butter and make some yummy cookies. I love this soft butter cookies recipe because you can mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a food processor or mixer rather than making a mess trying to cream these ingredients by hand.

The resulting dough is soft enough to drop or roll into balls. I’ve included instructions for both drop cookies and rolled cookies below.

How To Make Single Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe?

Necessary Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling for rolled cookies
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 9 ounces milk chocolate chips (or milk chocolate with a high cocoa content)

Equipment Needed

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl
  • In a medium bowl,

Preparation Instructions

Step 1.

Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg yolks in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy.

Step 2.

Combine the flour, and baking soda, then add to the butter mixture. Stir until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips

Step 3.

Roll the dough onto large sheets of waxed or parchment paper dusted with flour or cornstarch to prevent sticking, or drop it onto cookie sheets by heaping tablespoonsful (my favorite method).

Step 4.

Bake for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.


 On the chocolate chips: I use milk or semisweet chocolate chips in this cookie recipe because they melt nicely, and you can dip the cookies into some melted chocolate, which adds another special touch to these soft butter cookies recipes. Also, as long as you use good quality chocolate, these cookies can be kept at room temperature for up to two weeks (if refrigerated or frozen, they will last one week).


1. You can use up to 1 cup of white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate to create a yummy white chocolate cookie recipe, or substitute half the butter with 1/4 cup shortening for a slightly different texture.

2. For rolled sugar cookies recipe, roll small heaps of dough onto waxed or parchment paper dusted with flour and cut into desired shapes.

What Does Soft Butter Do To Cookies?

Cookies made with butter instead of shortening or margarine spread more easily and will not be as crisp. However, since butter contains milk fat, and milk products tend to brown more quickly, using it in cookies can often produce a nice golden-brown color.

What makes Cookies to be soft?

The final result is affected by the baking temperature, time, recipe, ingredients, and pan used to bake cookies. With most recipes, the higher the temperature, the faster the cookie browns and sets up (the exception is when using very dark pans, which absorb heat).

What is the secret to soft, chewy cookies?

The secret to soft, chewy cookies is baking at a slightly lower temperature, allowing the ingredients to get closer to the perfect temperature before the moment of maximum browning when the cookies are set. Too-low oven temperatures produce dry, crumbly cookies, and too much time results in gooey, gummy messes.
