These sugar cookies are my kids’ favorite.  

I also think, but haven’t been lucky enough to catch him and ask….. they are Santa’s favorite too.

We enjoy this simple, easy recipe and use Feingold-approved sprinkles and food colorings to “fix them up real pretty and festive” for our holiday dessert table.

Angie’s Sugar Cookies


1 c.                                   butter

2 c.                                   sugar

2                                       eggs

1 tsp.                              vanilla

3-1/2 c.                           flour

1 tsp.                              baking powder

1/2 tsp.                           salt

sugar for outside of cookies

 Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla; add flour, baking powder and salt.  Divide dough in half and form each ball into a roll. Cover rolls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place your sugar in a small bowl. Slice the dough into about 1/2 in. thick slices. Dunk in sugar on both sides and place on ungreased cookie sheet.   Bake for 8-10 minutes or until very lightly brown. Cool


Note: Using a table top mixer makes mixing the dough a lot easier
