It’s that time of the year. . . cookies!
This past weekend we made the traditional cut-out sugar cookies.
The kids love the “hands on” experience.
I have a recipe which is tasty and does NOT have to be refrigerated.
(I’m impatient and don’t want to wait!)
1 C butter
1 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
3 C flour
Cream butter and sugar with mixer. Add egg and vanilla. Beat til smooth. Add baking powder and flour, 1 C at a time. Mixing after each addition. Blend last cup of lour by hand. Divide dough into 2 balls. On flour surface roll each ball into 12” circle.
Preheat oven to 400.
Dip cutters in flour. Cut out cookie shapes and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 9-11 minutes.
DO NOT chill the dough.
Icing: 1/4 C milk, 1/2tsp vanilla, 1 1/2-2C powdered sugar.
They didn’t last long!
Happy holiday cookie making,
