Foodie Friday -- The Best Sugar Cookies in the WORLD

No, I'm not joking.  Seriously.  These are so good.

Sugar Cookies
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) unsalted butter @ room temp
  • 2 eggs
  1. In medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In large bowl, beat butter with mixer until smooth.  Add sugar and mix well.  Add eggs, one at a time and mix until completely blended in.
  3. Add flour mixture and continue mixing until smooth dough forms (2-3 min).
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and refridgerate for at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.
  5. Remove dough from fridge and roll on lightly floured surface.  Roll dough to 1/2 in. thickness and cut to desired shapes.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes or until edges just barely start turning golden brown.
  7. Once they are completely cooled, decorate however you like.
Now, go make some.  I bet you can't eat just one.  I promise these are lightly crispy on the edges and so soft on the inside.  Not mushy.  Not crunchy.  Just right.

I'm linking these beauties up to these sites.  Go check them out.
