P.S. I have a new sugar cookie recipe and it is FABULOUS if you’re on the lookout for one, so I’ll share it with you!!! Be warned though, for best results it should chill overnight (or if you can’t stand to wait that long give it at least 2 hours….or just eat all the dough with a spoon… whatever you’re in to.)
Yummiest Sugar Cookies
1 and 1/2 Cups Butter (No Margarine folks)
3 Cups Sugar
4 teas. Vanilla Extract
5-6 Cups Flour
2 teas. Baking Powder
1 teas. Salt
1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Cover and let chill for at least two hours (or Overnight if possible.)
2. Preheat oven to 400F. Roll out dough 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick on floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets.
3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes once oven is preheated. Cool completely. Decorate!
Just a note: this makes a ton of cookies. Last time, I halved this recipe and still got somewhere between 4 and 5 dozen. And if you’re like me, cookie cutters are only fun for so long and then you just want to lump the dough on the pan. Good luck and happy cooking!
