Sugar Cookies

Makes about 30 cookies


  • 1/2 Cup butter, soft
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/3 Cup flour


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lay parchment paper down on baking sheet, or grease sheet.
  • Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, scraping to make sure they’re mixed. Add vanilla.
  • Mix flour and baking powder together. Add slowly to wet mixture, scraping sides as you go.
  • Put the dough in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, then roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet.
  • Flatten them with a glass dipped in sugar (not too thin).
  • Bake for 10 minutes. They should just barely be browning on the bottom.
  • Cool on wire rack.

*You can add 1 tsp of almond extract to the wet mixture for a slightly different flavour!
