Cookies, Cookies, and more Cookies!

Since I don't have enough to do I started making sugar cookies to order. They have been a hit at family birthday parties, showers, and family get togethers. I have had a few orders placed and enjoy making them. I am excited to make them for Jalen's football team, Liam's birthday party, and all of the upcoming Holiday's. I may be in a little over my head in the next few months but it should be fun. I posted the recipe below in case anyone would like to make sugar cookies for the Holiday's. The icing is the "real secret" sorry ladies!

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.

Happy Baking!
