This is my FAVORITE sugar cookie recipe EVER. My sweet friend, Annie McDaniel, is the one who shared it with me years ago. It's my go-to recipe because it's not only EASY but there's no need to chill the dough prior to rolling out. AND...it actually produces a nice tasting cookie! *wink*
1 large egg
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
Using an electric mixer, mix wet ingredients: egg, butter, sugar & vanilla
Add dry ingredients...mix well.
Roll out dough on floured surface and cut with cookie cutters.
Bake at 400 degrees for 6-7 minutes
yields: approx. 24 - 3" cookies OR 150 - 1.5" cookies
Now all you need is some royal icing to decorate your cookies...here's my all-time favorite!
