Sugar Cookies

First, I wanted to post a few pictures of Jessica doing her math- in a sunbonnet!

Isn’t she cute?

We have been baking sugar cookies today…. aren’t they lovely?

Everyone was working hard…..

Although one little cutie was just having fun eating the dough!

Stars waiting for the cookie sheet

Here are a couple of original designs

Here is the recipe:

Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies

1 c. Butter
2 c. Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Eggs
5 C. Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 c. Milk

Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add vanilla. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Sift flour into seperate bowl, Measure and add salt, soda and baking powder. Sift again. Add sifted ingredients alternately with milk. Stir until smooth. Chill in refrigerator for several hours. Roll out to 1/4″ thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Place at least 1″ apart on greased cookie sheet and bake at 400^ for 8-10 minutes. Makes 6 dozen (or so).


We had such a wonderful time making these. We will be decorating them later today, with lots of colored icing!

Have a wonderful day from our family,

    Oh! Looks like so much fun…baking sweet cookies with lots of sweet faces around! :o) I just love the first sunbonnet picture…that big smile melts my heart…I love it! Not that I am rushing my daughter to grow faster (it happens too fast on its own…she is almost 8 months), but I cannot wait for the days when she is old enough to enjoy fun, baking days like this!
