Everyone likes a good sugar cookie and this is the recipe we always use. These turn out really soft and are quite tasty.
Classic Sugar Cookie
3 c. flour 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder 2 sticks butter
2 eggs 1 1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
Sift the baking powder, salt, and flour together and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy and then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Now, blend in the flour mixture. Cover the bowl and put in the refrigerate to chill for a minimum of 2 hours.
After the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll out your dough onto a floured surface about 1/4" thick. If you roll out the dough too thinly, the cookies will be crisp and not soft. Cut out cookies with cookie cutters. Bake for 8 1/2 minutes. You know they are done when the centers are no longer wet. Do not overcook. Decorate or frost as desired.
