2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 cup granulated sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cream together softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract, mixing until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll out the cookie dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness.
Place the cut-out cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
Once the cookies are completely cooled, unleash your creativity with icing, sprinkles, or edible decorations.
Pair your sugar cookies with a glass of milk for the perfect treat.
