No Fail Halloween Sugar Cookies
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups unsalted and softened butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract * All ingredients need to be at room temperature.
1. Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and add to butter mixture. Mix well.
2. Put a handful of the freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to desired thickness. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Put the rolled dough, including the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes or longer. Your dough will be chilled and ready to cut and bake with no wait and no added flour! Repeat with scraps after cutting cookies.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 -10 minutes. Let cool.
