Sugar cookies with homemade icing


Are you making this? 
4.5 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 sticks unsalted butter; {room temp}
2 cups sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Original recipe makes 12



Cream butter and sugar, add eggs. Mix dry ingredients together. Add vanilla to milk. Alternate adding flour mixture and milk mixture to the creamed butter and sugar mixture until well incorporated.

Scrape dough from bowl and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Divide into 4 sections, roll one section at a time and cut shapes. Place cut out cookies on parchment {I never bake without parchment!} lined baking sheets and bake for 8 to 10 mins. Let cool.


Mix powdered sugar with a little bit of milk and vanilla extract until you reach the consistency of Elmer’s glue, add food coloring if you like and frost cookies.

The cookies aren't the best but decent. Longer cooking time is needed
