No Fail Sugar Cookies Recipe

No Fail Sugar Cookies Recipe
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups unsalted butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and add to butter mixture. Mix well.

2. Put a handful of the freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to desired thickness. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Put the rolled dough, including the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes or longer. Your dough will be chilled and ready to cut and bake with no wait and no added flour! Repeat with scraps after cutting cookies.

This is my all time favorite sugar cookie recipe. It holds the shape and makes a good amount. East to work with and roll out. My daughter requests them every year for her birthday instead of cake. I make them often enough that I keep the recipe posted on the inside of my baking cabinet door. My next project will be to make the chocolate ones for Halloween, .
