Sugar Cookie Recipe

A boring Thursday night led to cookie making for a friend and I! Although sugar cookies were a little more labor intensive than I had remembered, it was very fun, and delicious!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix together:
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix these ingredients together, then add to above mixture:
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
3 1/3 cups flour

Form mixture into a ball and refrigerate for an hour. We tried to skip this step, but it just makes it way harder to make your shapes, because the dough is so soft....definitely refrigerate!

Take dough and flatten with a rolling pin, use flour on the surface and your rolling pin so it doesn't stick as much.

Cut out your shapes and put onto baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

We also made this frosting:

1/4 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons white corn syrup

Frost and enjoy!
