Sugar Cookies are Year Round American Favorite

Ingredients for Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for Icing

11-pound box confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons meringue powder
1/3 cup warm water
food coloring (optional)
assorted sprinkles, colored sugar and small candy pieces

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix until combined. Gradually add the sifted dry ingredients, one spoonful at a time, until thoroughly combined. Add the vanilla.
4. Chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
5. Roll out half of the dough at a time, keeping the remainder of the dough in the refrigerator.
6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thickness and cut it into desired shapes with a cookie cutter.
7. Place the cutout cookies 2 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet and put the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for a few minutes before baking. This will help the cookies retain their shape. (You can roll out the scraps to make a few more cookies.)
8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until just before the edges of the cookies start to brown.
9. Cool the cookies for 1 to 2 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
