Perfect Sugar Cookies

Nothing is perfect, except maybe these guys here. Everyone has their opinions on sugar cookies, but these ones cook up thick, hold their shape, stay soft, and taste like your Nana's love is all shoved inside. 

And did I mention they're simple? Well. Bonus for you - they are. 


1 cup butter (room temp)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
i large egg
2 tsp baking powder (don't be a newb, that says POWDER)
3 cups flour


Preheat oven to 400 degrees (Fahrenheit suckers, the United States shuns scientific normalcy)
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar
Add vanilla and egg
Mix baking powder and flour, add mixture 1 cup at a time (dough will be stiff)
Do not chill
Divide into two balls
Roll onto floured surface to about 1/4 " thick
Cut with desired cookie cutter
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes (until almost golden - seriously they lose their magic if you over cook them)
Frost as desired
