 'Cookie dough' is a good basic recipe.  Its part of my recipe collection; I copied it from the back of a Nestle product .  I hope it serves your purpose.

Cookie Dough

2 1/4 all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup of butter (= 2 sticks)

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 3/4 cup milk chocolate morsels(optional)

1 cup chopped nuts(optional)

Heat oven to 375*F. Combine and sift in a small bowl the dry ingredients (flour,baking soda, salt).  Beat butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, stir. Add flour mixture...chocolate morsels and nuts. Mix well. You can make logs or wrap portions of dough in the shape of sausages about 1 1/2" - 2" in diameter and Freeze. Cut thin slices when ready to bake some, place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes or until edges are lightly brown. Overbaked cookies are crispy (hard), underbaked cookies tend to be softer. Always make sure your cookie sheet is cool before baking other batches. Keep cookies in an airtight container.  

OPTIONS: You may divide the dough in two or three portions to make varieties of cookies. for example some prefer coconut flakes and raisins; or chocolate chips and nuts; still others will like to include all of the above. Design your own. Also plain (cold) dough can be rolled out to 1/8" thick and shape with cookie cutters before baking.

***********

For the spicy taste: Ginger Cookies

Ginger Cookies
3/4 cup butter, softened(1 1/2 stick)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger (or fresh grated)
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon grated rind of an orange 
extra granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and 1 cup sugar until creamy. Add egg and molasses; beat until combined. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the extra granulated sugar. Place balls on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes until barely turning brown. Allow to cool for 1 minute on baking sheet and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

When you grow up surrounded by sugar cane fields and a sugar boiler uncle in the house, your first culinary experience is going to be candy cookies and cakes

Harmac...I made candy with everything you can think of!!!...
Green Papaya; tomatoes; parched corn...
Coconut with sweet potato and ginger...
peanut sugarcake... with ginger
peanut 'dunderslap'
(you know... I never knew if Dunderslap was the last name of the lady who sold them or that was the name of the candy)...very hard and delicious, full of peanuts (not a brittle) these were thick caramel squares.
Maybe Jawbreakers were the real name (LOL!)

Almond candy (we had an almond tree, after you eat the meat 0ff the fruit you put them to dry and then you pound out the little almond inside...Pound you finger too)
Cherries candy (we had a cherry tree)...
As long as there were sugar...we were cooking!

My dentist calls me... "A dentist dream"
