Classic Sugar Cookie Recipe

Today was a little crazy at work as we watched a small snowstorm come through our area with 2-3 inches of snow. While 2-3 inches of snow isn't a lot, at all, it does usually warrant us an early dismissal before the roads get too bad. Not this time. Every single dang on county around us in Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia had an early dismissal but us! Not fair!

Anyway, Cory and I trecked it up the mountain and arrived safely back at Frederick. We went out for a quick cup of coffee, came home and made some grub. While Cory was holding down the fort with dinner, I thought I would whip up a quick batch of sugar cookies. Cory had promised a dedicated evening of Home Alone and decorating sugar cookies... so with our fresh blanket of snow, I thought it was the perfect opportunity!

Here's what you'll need:

2/3 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour

1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Mix butter, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
3. Add in flour as you beat the mixture and it forms into dough.
4. Cool dough for 30 minutes in your fridge.
5. Roll out dough so it's prime for cooking cutter-ing!
6. Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes.

Easy! Here are pictures from our night:
