Football Season - AwEsOmE SuGaR CoOkIeS!!!

For the love of the vikings we decided to have friends over for the game to cheer on the vikes! I made old fashioned sugar cookies - the good kind that require the rolling pin, chilling the dough, and a lot of flour! The recipe is pretty simple and they always turn out delicious - i have used a few different types of icing for these cookies and it keeps people guessing each time...EnJoY!


1 cup butter, unsalted

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs lightly beaten

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt


In a bowl cream the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time mixing after each addition. Mix in vanilla. In a second bowl combine and mix well the flour, baking poweder, and salt. Stir flour into butter mixture one cup at a time. Chill the dough for 3 to 4 hours until firm. This will provide ease when forming into shapes. (for lack of time i put in the freezer not letting it freeze but get nice and chilled then continue). Once dough is ready, roll out on a floured surface and using shapes of your choice cut and place on a greased cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 350 while finishing cutting cookies. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Place on a rack to cool before icing.
