Soft, Sweet, Sugar Cookies

Soft, sweet, sugar cookies.

Now I say that because–looks can sometimes be deceiving. Just because a cookie is positively beautiful…is no guarantee that it will, you know…taste good.  No, my friends–it is not a given. Unless, of course, you make them yourself–with the perfect recipe.

And so I give you these~

soft, sweet…

melt in your mouth…

You can thank me later.

Ingredients:

2/3  cup  butter, softened
3/4  cup  sugar
1  teaspoon  baking powder
1/4  teaspoon  salt
1    egg
1  tablespoon  milk
1  teaspoon  vanilla
2  cups  all-purpose flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour.  Divide dough in half. If necessary, cover and chill about 30 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.

On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough at a time until 1/4 inch thick. Cut dough into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are very lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack; cool. Ice with your favorite frosting. I’m a big fan of cream cheese frosting…
