Christmas is incomplete without the melt in the mouth sugar cookies. Try out this simple recipe.


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder


Mix together the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg until light and fluffy. Add the flour and baking powder.

Blend until well mixed. Chill the dough for 2 hours (or overnight).

Roll out on a lightly-floured surface until 1/8-inch thick. Cut with a cookie cutter.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 200 degree oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Cool before storing.
