Sugar Cookie Recipe

today I want to share my favorite sugar cookie recipe!

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar (or 3/4 cup if you like extra sweet!)
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract

・whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside

・mix butter and sugar together on high speed until smooth and creamy (~2 mins)

・add egg and vanilla, and mix on high speed again until combined (~1 min)

・add dry ingredients and mix on low until combined- if dough is too sticky, add 1 tbs flour

・divide dough into 2 equal parts and place each on a lightly floured parchment/plastic wrap

・roll dough out to about 1/4in thickness, then seal in parchment/plastic wrap

・put in fridge for 1 - 2 hours

・once chilly, put each dough on lightly floured cutting board and cut into cute shapes!

・preheat oven to 350degrees f

・bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown~!

・decorate and enjoy!

 I hope you like them! They are the best if you can use a cute cookie cutter, like hearts stars or cute animals!
