Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cups butter
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoons vanilla
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

These cookies are awesome to make at any holiday. All you need are the cookie cutters for the holiday. For this holiday, to be culturally diverse, you could use a star or a gingerbread man cookie cutter. I love making these cookies because there are so many ways you can create the final product of these cookies. Especially for the holiday season. Hopefully this recipe helps you with the holiday season.
