Today is national sugar cookie day so what better way to spend the day than to bake some sugar cookies! The great thing about sugar cookies is that you can make them so quickly, and they're gone just as quickly! They're a prefect treat, and easy to make, so it's great to get the kids involved.
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. vanilla extract
1 1/2c white sugar
2 3/4c flour
1 c butter, softened
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Blend in the dry ingredients a little at a time. Roll teaspoonfuls of dough into small balls, and place them on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8-10 minutes. Let them stand on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes and then remove them to cool on wire racks.
