Cookie Time

My Pantshood Sister, Beth, and her real-life sister, Julie, make excellent sugar cookies. These cookies are great to bring to holiday events because they are A) delicious B) adorable and C) deliciously adorable.

Beth and Julie got their recipe from a friend of theirs, Janice Grubb, and they make the perfect, tasty canvas for a creative cookie decorator.

Janice's/Beth's/Julie's Sugar Cookies

2 cups butter
3 cups sugar
4 eggs 2 tsp vanilla
6 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
4 Tablespoons milk 

Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then beat egg and vanilla in well. Add flour, salt, and baking powder. Then add milk. Chill for about an hour. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface. Bake at 375 for about 9 – 10 minutes.

1/3 cup melted butter
3 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbs milk
1 ½ tsp vanilla 

So acquire some holiday spirit, some cute sprinkles and some festive cookie cutters. Maybe display your cookies in a basket, take them on a plane, or give them to coworkers!
