Sugar Cookies!

Well, you are probably saying I am a bit late sharing this recipe. Well, we made them late this year. I was so busy with the boys and cubscouts and church that we made them only 2 nights before Christmas this year! Santa had to have something to eat, right!?!

The Menu:
Sugar Cookies




The Original Recipe:
My stepmom gave me this recipe. I like it because you only have to chill it for an hour. Some or most Sugar Cookie recipes you need to chill over night. These always turn out great!

Maw's sugar cookies



Ingredients

1 1/2 cup Sugar
 2 sticks Butter (1 cup)
3 Eggs
 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking powder
 1 tsp. Vanilla
3 1/2 cup Flour

Preparation

Mix all ingrediants together. Chill for an hour. Cut out with cookie cutters. I roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick. I like puffy cookies! Bake 375 for 5-9 minutes.



Sugar Cookie Icing

1 stick Butter
1 cup Powdered Sugar plus extra
1 tsp. Vanilla

Whip butter, vanilla and powdered sugar together. Add more powdered sugar to make stiff icing. May seperate and add food coloring for colorful icing.
