Wendi Bracken’s Sugar Cookie Recipe

3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened  (It’s important to use butter, not margarine and to chill the dough.)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients to butter mixture.  Mix well.  Take dough and place 1/3 of it between two pieces of waxed paper.  Roll it out to desired thickness and then place it into the refrigerator.  Continue with the rest of the dough.  Chill dough for 2 hours.  Remove top sheet of waxed paper.  Cut out desired shape with cookie cutter.  Reroll left over dough between wax paper.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 35 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until edges begin to turn light brown.  Makes 3-4 dozen.
