Frosted Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 400º.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl & set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat until mixed well. Add the dry ingredients & mix well. Chill for at least an hour to stiffen the dough. Roll dough out & cut into shapes or form dough balls and flatten into thick circles with your hands.

Bake 8-10 mins or until the edges of cookies start to turn a very light golden brown. Don’t overbake!

FROSTING:1/3 cup butter, melted
1 Tbsp vanilla
3 Tbsp milk
4.5-6 cups powdered sugar (thicken to desired consistency)
food coloring

Mix all ingredients together. Apply generous helpings of frosting onto completely cooled cookies. (Frosting will bleed off if cookies are warm.)

*If frosting is too runny, add more powdered sugar. If it’s too thick, add more milk, 1 tsp at a time.
