Recipe: Vanilla Cookie Bites

I wanted to make some itty bitty cookies for lunches, and I succeeded.

This recipe makes a TON of cookies.  Tiny little cookies.  About 330 tiny little cookies.

(For me, that was 4 cookie sheets)

Next time, I want to try adding almond extract.  Or chocolate.  Maybe food coloring.  That could be fun.

Vanilla Cookie Bites

1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 325 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.
Combine the dry ingredients and then mix into the rest of the dough. Scrape dough into a pastry bag fitted with a star piping tip (you could use plain, too)

Pipe the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, making each cookie about the size of a dime. Cookies will spread, but only a little space is needed between cookies.
Bake at for 10 minutes, until cookies are a light golden brown. Baking time will vary depending on the exact size of your cookies.

Store in an air tight container.  Makes about 330 tiny little cookie bites.
