Sugar Cookies (GF optional)
- 1 c butter room temp
- 1 c white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 c flour
Whip butter for a minute or two in a stand mixer and then add sugar- cream together until smooth.
Add vanilla and egg and mix. Add salt and baking powder and flour. If dough is super sticky and wet add up to 1/4c more flour.
Divide dough and form into a disc or logs and chill until firm. (a few hours in fridge or toss in freezer for 30min-1hour)
Either slice off rounds to bake circular cookies or roll out and use cookie cutters. Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes. Dipping cookie cutters in flour can help them not stick!
If you don’t care about the cookies holding shape and just want sugar cookies in your mouth- no need to chill.
