Mom’s Sugar Cookies

I don’t know where my mom got this recipe, but it is a good one! They turn out soft and yummy. Ava requested heart shaped cookies for her birthday this year, so we made a bunch of these and frosted them with cherry cream cheese frosting. Yum.

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400.

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture until just combined.

Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Roll out to about 1/8-1/4 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into  shapes and bake for 8-10 minutes.
