Sugar Cookies!

My brother and I (although I did basically everything) made the sugar cookies! They are delicious and are really easy to make and fun to decorate!

Here are two pictures of my favorite decorated cookies:

If you would like to attempt at making these beautiful and delicious cookies here is the recipe:

What you will need:

1. electric mixer

2. bowl

3. whisk

4. rolling pin

5. 2 cups of all-purpose flour (plus extra for rolling the dough)

6. 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

7. 1/4 teaspoon of salt

8. 1/2 cup (one stick) of butter

9. 1 cup of sugar

10. 1 egg

11. 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt) in a medium size bowl with a whisk. In the electric mixer beat the butter and sugar for a few minutes until its creamy. Then, at medium speed, add the egg and vanilla extract until blended. Add the dry flour mixture. Pack the dough until a nice ball. Then, wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit there for about half an hour to an hour in the fridge (or out if it is less than an hour). Roll the dough out with a rolling pin until nice and even. Take any cookie cutters you would like to use and cut out the cookies. Put them on a cookie sheet and cook for 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool. After, put any decorations you would like.
