This is my daughter's favorite cookie recipe. I think it's only because of the sprinkles. I tried using this recipe with cookie cutters. I have yet to be succesful rolling it out (it's too soft even after 24 hrs refridgerated). It makes a great basic sugar cookie though that can literally be decorated with anything!
2 3/4 c All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 c Butter, softened
1 1/2 c White Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 c Sprinkles
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
Place sprinkles in a seperate small bowl.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfulls of dough into balls. Dip tops of dough into sprinkles. Place onto a cookie sheet and lightly press down to semi-flatten cookie.
Bake 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to cooling racks.
