Easy Sugar Cookies
Makes: 30 cookies
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup softened butter (It is very important to have the butter completely softened before starting in order to have soft cookies in the end. You can speed up the softening process by putting the butter in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until it's soft.)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
