A simple butter cookie with a sweet crunch on top.
Heat oven to 375°F. Combine 1 cup sugar and 3/4 cup butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Place remaining 1 cup sugar in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Dip top of each ball in water, then in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-14 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

I had the same problem mentioned above. They were delicious, but spread instead of staying in a ball. I'm not sure if I made them too large or what was going on. If anyone has some suggestions I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
I liked it ...very simple to make...my family loved them so I made them for my church's "Peak of the Week"
the recipe was easy and the one nch balls are just the right size. this would make a perfect christmas cookie by adding red and green sprinkles once out of the oven
....to add to my last comment, they didnt keep their shape :( they r now basically sugar cookies. Admittedly I liked the dough (tasted really good)
when i was rolling my dough into balls, it was not very solid, not sure if thats normal or not. I also just dipped the top half in sugar w/o the water, because when I tried that for the first 2, it was getting messy :/
This is a great cookie. I make them all the time. Once you make them you will understand the purpose of the full cup of sugar for dipping. Once that sugar begins to glaze, wow delicious.
I agree, there is something wrong with this recipe. 1 full cup of sugar just for dipping? Ended up with 3/4 cup sugar left over and the cookies weren't sweet enough. Same issue with crumbly dough, cookies were dry and tasteless. Really disappointing.
This is a delicious buttery cookie. My family loves them. I do have a question though. When baking, the dough spreads and loses the ball shape. What can I do to keep the dough from losing the ball shape? Am I making the balls to big? Have made a couple of times.
I made these cookies today with my eldest daughter and I think there's something wrong with the recipe. I don't think there's enough liquid in the dough; it was rather dry and crumbly. Also, the recipe card says that one batch of dough should yield 5 dozen cookies. I used my cookie disher (1 inch in size) and did as directed, rolling into balls. I only got about 2 dozen cookies out of this batch!I will make them again, though, since they are really quite good, but might make some adjustments.
it good ...will i make it again maybe ...
i made these the other night & there were great!! preparing another batch tonight!!

It was a beautiful day and Dad offered to take over dinner. He found a manly recipe for Mustard & Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops and made a plan.
Freshly sliced from the deli, Land O Lakes® 4 Cheese Italian Blend combines the rich flavors of Asiago, Romano and Parmesan with creamy American to bring the authentic taste of Italy to your American fare.
After you make the hamburger patties and light the grill, what do you get out of the fridge?
Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
