cut out cookies


3/4 cups (1 1/2 sticks) butter (softened)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups AP flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt


In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until it is smooth. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt and stir to combine.
Cover the bowl and chill in the fridge for at least an hour - if you have time leave it overnight.
When you are ready to cook the cookies, preheat the oven to 400°F.
Roll out the cookie dough on a flour surface until it is 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
Cut out the cookies with fun shaped cookie cutters.
Place the cookies on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Leave about an inch between them.
Bake for 6 - 8 minutes.
Cool completely and serve.
