Yesterday on La Vida Dulce, Kellie referenced my sugar cookie recipe and they really are yummy and so easy! I inherited this recipe from my sister and won't use any other now.
1 c. butter (2 sticks)
1 large egg
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add baking powder and flour, one cup at a time mixing after each.
Do not chill dough. Dough may be tinted with food coloring. Pat or roll out (not too thin) and cut. Bake 6 min. or until golden brown at edges. Frost when cool.
Note: drop cookies take 9-10 minutes
