Really Good Rolled Sugar Cookies

Who Doesn't Like Sugar Cookies

I don't care what kind of event you bring them to, the sugar cookies are always welcome.  I think it's because everybody has something they can relate to them with.  For some it's Christmas, Easter, or Thanksgiving. For some it's Valentines day.  I make them anytime I just want to pick somebody up.  Recipes vary, but not by much. I think the ones that include time in the fridge are the best.  There's something about letting ingredients sit together for a while that makes them better.  When you use this recipe, you'll have a big log of cookies that you can just 'slice' whenever you need one.  And you're going to need one all the time.  (just a reminder... this is a personal recipe box.  I cook for taste...not pictures ;-)

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
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."

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
