Can you believe I've never made sugar cookies the whole time I've been married? I know! Shame on me. To be honest, I didn't know that Nate liked them. Anyway, on Halloween night we made some sugar cookies. They turned out really well and are indeed super soft. I forgot to roll mine in sugar, but they were great anyway. I found this recipe over at Oopsey Daisy.
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
3 tsp. baking powder
3 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Chill 1 hour. Roll and cut. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes.
The picture is awful, we didn't start baking the cookies until almost 9 pm, so the lighting was non-existant.
