When it comes to sugar cookies, everyone has their own taste for what they like. As for me, I think I have found my perfect sugar cookie. I don't like my sugar cookies fluffy and cakey, or crisp. I like my cookies dense, moist and chewy. And that is just what I found in these babies! Yum! Credit goes to my neighbor Natalie Thurman, who I got this recipe from. (Her mother has been making these for years).
2 cups sugar
2 cups softened butter
6 tsp baking powder
7 cups flour
4 tsp vanilla
Cream sugar & butter. Add eggs & vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Put in plastic wrap in fridge for 2 hours before baking. Bake at 350 for 4-5 minutes. (My oven produced perfect cookies at 7 minutes).
**Roll your cookies out somewhat thick as they do not rise much, if any.
**Makes around 7 dozen.
