I almost forgot that I wanted to share this sugar cookie recipe with you. I made these cookies a few weeks ago when I did the post for Brave Girls Club. This is a recipe that I have made a lot and it always makes the yummiest, softest cookies.
2/3 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tbls. milk
2 tsp. real vanilla
2 cups white flour
In your mixer, mix together butter, sugar, and baking powder until well combined. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, mixing thoroughly. Add flour 1/2 cup at a time.
I usually throw my dough in the freezer for a few minutes to help it set up before I roll it out. I know that most people refrigerate it, but I am far too impatient for that!
Roll dough out on a floured surface, cut with your favorite cookie cutters, and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
As you can see, my cookies are never perfect. That’s ok. They taste great!
Bake at 375 for 7 minutes. If you like a harder cookie, bake for a minute or so longer. I love my cookies nice and soft so I usually watch them pretty carefully to make sure I don’t overcook them.
Frost with your favorite buttercream frosting, and enjoy!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
