Soft Sugar Cookies


Here is a soft and chewy sugar cookie I use and its easy to make

1 1/2 Cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

In a stand mixer add butter and sugar, then cream together. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour,
baking powder and salt and cream the mixture. Sprinkle a little flour on the surface of the counter
you intend to roll your dough onto. Place your dough onto the floured surface and flatten with your hands.
Sprinkle a little flour on the flatten dough, using a rolling pin, roll your dough to a 1/4″ thickness. Select a cookie
cutter and begin to cut your shapes. (the way I keep the dough from sticking to the cutter is to dip the cutter into
flour after each cutting) Place your shapes onto a ungreased cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes
Or until they are slightly brown on the edges. Allow to cool slightly then transfer to a cooling rack.
