Holiday Sugar Cookies

My favorite holiday cookie is the sugar cookie. I love to make them for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Independence Day, and Halloween. But most of all I love making them for Christmas because I love to cut them out into these cute little wreaths.

Sugar Cookie and Hot Chocolate

Holiday Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar

3 cups flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla. Add baking powder and flour one cup at a time, mixing well. The dough will be very stiff. Do not chill. Roll into 1/8 inch thick and dip cutters in flour before each use. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and then remove from cookie sheet.
