Dutch Sugar Cookies - roll out
These are the smoothest, most delicious cookies. And, they're easy to roll and cut, as they don't stick like many others. The difference is that they're made with powdered sugar rather than granulated sugar. Perfect for Christmas, kid's birthday parties, etc."It seems like most of my memories from being a little girl are centered around the kitchen table during holidays: I remember colouring Easter eggs, I remember carving pumpkins, and I remember my mom bringing out the cookie cutters and decorating bits and bobs. (Which doesn't explain why Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday, but...). So I've made this recipe up twice, let the little ones help me out and we are all impressed! It is going on my Christmas cookie staple list! Thanks for posting it!" - cleverkt

Dutch Sugar Cookies - roll out Preparation
Using electric mixer, beat sugar and butter in large bowl until light.
Beat in egg and vanilla.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine.
Divide dough in half. Gather each piece into ball and flatten into disks. Wrap in plastic and chill 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 325.
Roll out 1 dough disk on floured work surface to 1/8 in. thickness. Using assorted cookie cutters, cut out cookies.
Transfer cookies to ungreased baking sheets, spacing 1 in. apart.
Bake cookies until pale golden, about 13 minutes.
Transfer cookies to rack; cool.
Repeat with remaining dough disk.
Ice and decorate to your taste.
Note: I like a very simple icing made of water, powdered sugar, lemon juice, and food coloring. Just mix to the right consistency and taste.
