Cookies, Cookies, Cookies!!!

Rolled Sugar Cookies
(Southern Living)

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar,
beating well. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt;
gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Shape dough into a ball;
cover and chill 1 1/2 hours. Divide dough into thirds. Work with one portion of dough
at a time, storing remaining dough in refrigerator. Roll each portion to 1/4" thickness
on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters and place on lightly greased cookie
sheets. Bake at 375F for 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let cookies
cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate as desired. Yields 3 1/2 dozen.

That looks like so much fun! Is that your mom? I'm just guessing because you said she was visiting this week.

Send some my way to my snowman plates! :)

p.s. I'm going to get around to answering your question in a little bit, so check back. I just didn't want you to think I wasn't going to answer because it was taking me a while.

Hi, Kayren,
I noticed that I left out a pic with my mom in it, so I went back and added one. My mom is in the striped shirt and my sister is the one with the short, dark hair.
