       Title: Sugar Cookies
  Categories: Polkadot, Faylen, Cookies
       Yield: 1 Servings
  
       3 c  Flour
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
       2 ts Baking powder
       1 pn Salt
       1 c  Butter
       2 lg Eggs, beaten
       1 ts Vanilla
  
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift dry ingredients together.  Work
   butter into the dry mixture with a pastry cutter until it becomes
   coarse grains. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until blended. You can
   use an electric mixer at this point, but it’s better if done by hand.
   Roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter.
   Space cookies 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes and
   cool on racks. Cool completely before frosting.
   
   These are the Christmas cookies that my family’s sworn by for three
   generations. You can fool around with them by adding different
   extracts - I've done well with mint extract and almond extract.
