Sugar Cookies-from Mom
Ingredients and Directions: Preheat over 350 degrees
Cream together until light and fluffy;
2 sticks butter (I use unsalted)
1 cup sugar
Mix together and add to step one;
1 tsp vanilla extract
Add to butter mixture;
2 tsp baking powder
2 3/4 cup flour, 1 cup at a time
Mix until just combined.
DO NOT CHILL DOUGH!
Pick out desired cookie cutters (or scoop with a cookie scoop and roll into sugar and flatten on the cookie sheet; if you choose this way the cookies will need longer to bake in the oven, add about 2-3 minutes).
Divide dough into 2 balls, put one on a floured surface and roll out into 12 inch circle into 1/8 inch thick or desired thickness (sometimes I roll my out thicker).
Dip cookie cutter into flour. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Re-roll dough until you have used almost all of the dough. Roll out second ball of dough, same directions.
Bake 6-7 minutes at 350 degrees.
Enjoy! They are delicious!!!
