Mom's Famous Sugar Cookies
  • 1 cup salted butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2½ cups flour (I like to use Pillsbury for these)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • Sprinkles
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment.
  3. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
  4. Add egg and vanilla.
  5. Add flour, powder and salt to form dough.
  6. I like to roll this dough out right on the cookie sheet with another piece of parchment on top of it and only a drop of flour sprinkled on top of the dough.
  7. Use cookie cutters.
  8. Add sprinkles.
  9. Bake 8-10 mins depending on the size of your cookies until lightly golden.
  10. Let cool.
