Butter Cookies (CPS)

I am on the hunt for the Chicago Public School (CPS) cookies.  I found this recipe and gave it a try.  This is a super easy recipe and the cookies are good, but not quite the ones I am looking for.  My family did love these and I was able to make these in 20 minutes excluding cooking time, so this is a great cookie.   I got this from Food.com.



  • 1 
cup softened butter
  •  2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 
cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 
tablespoons all-purpose flour (I did not do)
  • 2 
teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 
pinch salt
  • 4 
teaspoons sugar (optional) (I did not do)



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • Mix in vanilla extract.
  • Mix in flour gradually.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, roll dough into balls and slightly flatten on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Flatten cookies with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar if desired.
  • Bake until golden brown (approximately 12-15 minutes.

Makes about 2 dozen.
