We had a sugar cookie party on Saturday. These are the best sugar cookies we've ever made.
My son rolled out the dough.
Rolled Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
In large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cover and chill 1 hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 F. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters, sprinkle with colored sugar if desired, bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely. Makes 5 dozen.
Absolutely delicious. These are softer sugar cookies, which I like, rather than crispy.
Be sure to take time for a cup of tea and a little treat with someone you love.
