Sugar Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the extract and egg.
In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, salt with flour and add a little at a time to the wet ingredients.
The dough will be very stiff. If it becomes too stiff for the mixer, put the dough on a counter top, wet your hands and finish kneading it by hand.
DO NOT CHILL the dough. Divide it and roll it out onto a floured surface and cut. Make the cookies thick about 1/4 . (Use heart-shaped cookie cutter for these designes)
Bake at 350 for 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.
