Cut Out Sugar Cookies

These melt in your mouth. Just sayin'.
Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 c butter, softened
2 c sugar
4 eggs
2 t vanilla
5 c flour
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.
Mix well. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
Chill dough 1 hour or overnight.
Dough is very sticky...knead lightly with a little flour.
Roll out 1/2 inch thick on well-floured board.
Cut shapes and bake 350 degrees 10 minutes
or until barely golden at the edges.
(don't roll too thin and don't over bake!)
1/2 c butter, soft
2-3 c powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
enough milk to thin to correct consistency
Whip until well mixed. Spread on cooled cookies.


  1. I usually don't do Cut Out Cookies, but these look so good, I think I better make some for my Sunday School Class Party. I know the children would love them.

    Love the little blue on the frosting and your cloth you are displaying them on... What a nice picture.

  2. Wanda ~ I just did circles..easier than all the shapes. :)

    To make the sugar sprinkled on top, I worked a drop of blue food coloring into some granulated sugar with the back of a spoon.

  3. Great! And of course, you can wash them down with some Peoples Temple Flavor Aid (recipe here)!

  4. They look and sound great.;))I realy should try to do some baking again.;))

  5. Can you send cookies by inter-continental post?

  20. I made them this morning and they are a big hit! Even with my 12 year old with Autism. He usually only eats chocolate chip but he didn't leave my side making these and he even helped cut some out. While we were frosting them I think he ate about a dozen. :) Thanks for the recipe.
