Super Simple Sugar Cookies

Today I'm sharing a SUPER simple and really delicious sugar cookie recipe.  These aren't super chewy.  They're not like a cookie you could do cutouts with.  They're kind of light.  Kind of shortbready and SO SIMPLE my kids made them.

What You'll Need...
- 3 sticks softened butter (I used salted)
- 1.5 cups sugar (plus extra for rolling)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
-  3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt

What You'll Do...
Step 1 - Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

Step 2 - Cream the butter and sugar together in a stand mixer.  Beat it on high for 3-5 minutes... it's going to seem like a lot but it will be light and fluffy when it's done.  Scrape the bowl, turn the mixer to low and add in the eggs and vanilla.  

Step 3 - Add in the flour mixture and bead again for 30 seconds or so.

Step 4 - Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and then roll them in sugar.  Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten them a bit with the bottom of the glass.

Step 5 - Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes... you'll want to pull them out as soon as the edges start to get golden brown.

I took one photo while they were making these and it's just the light and fluffy creamed butter/sugar.

This made about 3 dozen cookies and my kids have been gobbling them up all week.

If you make these I'd love to hear what you think!  HAPPY Tuesday, friends!!!
