Jill Saunders posts a sugar cookie recipe on Allrecipes.com. She recommends handing out the recipe with your gift of cookies because you’ll be asked for it! It must be really good and it’s sure to be tried at our home soon. We wanted to post a good recipe to go with April Bruinekool’s guest blog post.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
