Sugar Cookies with Icing

Sugar Cookies
Ingredients for cookies
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
Directions
  1. Cream together the sugar, butter, eggs and milk until well combined.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder in a separate bowl and then slowly add to the sugar mixture until combined.
  3. Roll out small amounts of the dough at a time.  You will need LOTS of FLOUR for rolling out.
  4. Cut with cookie cutters and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are done and remove from pan.  The cookies will be light in color.  You don't want them to be lightly brown!
