Here is a universal recipe for sugar cookies. You can make them plain or roll them out for cut out cookies. Either way they are delicious!
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 3 tbl milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream butter with the sugar until fluffy. Add in egg, milk and vanilla until combined.
- Slowly add in flour 1 cup at a time and beat until creamy. Finally add in the baking powder and salt. If you are rolling out the dough, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for about an hour to make for easier rolling.
- Roll dough onto floured surface and cut into shapes or place spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet and bake 5 - 7 minutes or until golden brown.
