The Great Online Cookie Exchange Is TODAY!!!

Hey, you all, it's that time of year again!  Time to tempt you to try something new and enjoy a few new recipes too!  So this year I am sharing one of our kids' favorite cookie recipes.  I know rolled sugar cookies are a dime a dozen, but this one I have used for years and I, kid you not, it's our favorite sugar cookie recipe ever!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups of butter softened (that's three sticks if you're counting and I melt mine completely)
2 to 2 1/3 cups of white sugar (this will depend on how sweet you want the actual cookies)
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Powdered sugar (I use powdered sugar rather than flour to roll the cookie dough in)

Directions:
In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar until well blended.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Then add flour and baking powder.   You can chill the mixture for an hour or overnight, but we use it right away.  If dough is very sticky add additional powdered sugar to your countertop.  I have found this gives the cookies a nice texture.

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, but this will depend on the thickness of the cookie and size of the shapes you cut.  Cool completely before removing.
