The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Author/Submitted by: Jill Saunders, Allrecipes
Servings: 60
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1 1/2  cups  butter, softened
2  cups  sugar
4    eggs
1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
5  cups  all-purpose flour
2  teaspoons  baking powder
1  teaspoon  salt

1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

Flora: This is a good recipe, but not special. I really prefer "Christmas Cutouts with Vanilla Icing."
