I have been baking a LOT lately, just in time for the Christmas season! I am way behind on posting all my goodies, mainly because the pictures of yummies aren't so yummy looking. Taking pictures of food is difficult. :/ Anyway here is a simple sugar cookie recipe I got from a friend
(Thanks Rachel Ramos!)
1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 cup sugar
1t. vanilla extract
2t. baking powder
3 cups flour
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Beat together butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and mix until well incorporated.
Mix together flour and baking powder in separate bowl. Slowly add to butter mixture and
stir until dough forms.
Roll out dough onto light floured surface (I used flour and powdered sugar), cut into shapes or roll into balls and place on cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-12 min allow to cool and enjoy or frost with icing or a glaze like mine! You can also sprinkle sugar on cookies just before baking! Yumm!
