The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

With all of the leftover icing from my Wilton Classes, I decided to make cut-out cookies with my niece, Fallyn, this weekend and let her decorate them. The recipe below is from allrecipes.com. Fallyn liked how soft the dough was and how much fun it was to roll it out and play with it. She said she could do this every day for the rest of her life! Wow - and I thought I liked to bake! She did a great job! Don't they look great?

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

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).

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter.

Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

While the batter was chilling, my brother came over with his new puppy...

Back to work we go. Here is Fallyn with the first sheet of cookies ready to bake. She's also modeling my new Apron from TPOX (my WC exchange elf)!
