It's that time of year ladies: cookie time! I mean, they are the easiest gift to give and instantly make people smile. We have a go to sugar cookie recipe that is fool proof. It works every time and people just love them!
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
3 cups flour
3 tablespoons milk
Cream butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until combined. Mix baking powder and flour and gradually add to the dough. After all the dry ingredients are combined, add milk.
Now you're ready to go! Put some flour down on waxed paper and roll out the dough until your favorite thickness. Use your favorite cookie cutters and put on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees or until the cookies have cracked a tad at the top.
and bingo, you're ready for holiday cookie season! These today are ready for my little students to decorate. Can't wait to see what they do with their calabazas (pumpkins!)!
