Savour the Christmas Season - Sugar Cookies

We are savouring the Christmas Season by baking sugar cookies and decorating them. I think this is also a brilliant gift idea! 

The Sugar Cookie Recipe (couldn't get any easier than this!)
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened  
  • 2 cups white sugar 
  • 4 eggs  
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4  inch thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. 
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
4. Decorate!
