Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add butter, 1 cup granulated sugar and powdered sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Cream until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add remaining 1/2 cup sugar to a shallow bowl or plate. Using a regular size cookie scoop, portion out cookie dough and roll into balls. Roll the cookie dough in the sugar.
