Something Sweet

Recently I found a great sugar cookie recipe that my kids love. (Of course are there any cookies that they don't enjoy?!)


2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons colored sprinkles

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large blowl, cream togeher the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Form into one large ball and chill for around 15 minutes (You can wash up the dishes while it's chilling and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F).
Roll into small balls of about 1 eating spoonful each. Place dough balls onto very slightly greased baking sheet. Gently press dough ball into one direction, sprinkle on colored sprinkles and press again in the other direction. Dough should still be somewhat in a ball, only slightly flattened. Make sure to rooms between the cookies because they will spread out.

Bake 8 minutes in pre heated oven and, even though they will not be brown, remove cookies from oven. Let stand 2 minutes before removing from baking sheet.

Makes close to 4 dozen cookies.
