So this recipe is super easy, even easier than the brown butter chocolate chip cookie recipe. I will say though, this recipe makes a rather large amount of cookies. For our family, we only have to make one batch, but there is 10 of us. (ok, so 9 since the youngest can't eat cookies yet ;)) One batch makes about 5 dozen cookies. So if you want a smaller batch, I would suggest cutting it in half, or maybe in thirds. But if you've got a big family, hosting a party, or just love cookies....this should be right up your alley ;)
1 1/2 cup butter softened
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
5 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Cream butter and sugar until smooth
Beat in eggs and vanilla
Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cover and chill for at least 1 hour (or overnight)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out dough on floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness
Cut into any kind of shape you'd like. (even if you don't have a cookie cutter in the shape you want, you can always form it with your fingers or use a knife to cut it out.)
Place 1 inch apart on un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake 6-8 minutes or until the bottom is a light golden brown. Cool completely.
Sugar Cookie Frosting
Stir together until desired consistency.
And now for the fun part....
There's really no need for directions hear. Let your creativity flow! And remember, there can never be too many sprinkles ;)
