The BEST Sugar Cookies EVER

Three times a year, I roll up my sleeves and make grandma Betty's amazing sugar cookies.  They are definitely a labor of love.  Having little ones to join me in the kitchen makes the process so much more fun!  I had my friend Kileann over with her adorable little guy, to show them the ropes.  If there is one thing I am confident in my skills, it's that of sugar cookie making.  I make them thick and soft with just the right amount of frosting.  P has taken a liking to the process and now looks forward to each holiday that much more.

I know I have shared this recipe before, but wanted to make sure if you haven't tried them already, to give them a shot.  I promise you won't be disappointed.  The trick is having your butter room temperature and lots of vanilla!


Mix: 3/4 cup butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla
Add: 2 1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. salt
Wrap the dough in tinfoil and let sit in the fridge over night

Sprinkle counter with flour, roll out cookies
Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes

* I always double the recipe.

Buttercream Frosting
(on the back of C&H Pure Can Sugar box)
1 box powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 stick of butter (softened)
food coloring of your choice

Beat with a mixer and enjoy!
