Fun Sugar Cookies to bake this weekend. Amber and I made them. They taste great!
We might do a few things differently next time though.

The end result , pretty, tasty cookies. YUM!
Here is the recipe if you want to try.
Sugar Cookie Ingredients
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Mix dry ingredient, and put aside.
Blend butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla . Add dry ingredients by thirds to form a ball when holding together.
Chill dough! Roll out and cut out sugar cookies.

For decorative log, divide dough into two balls, and tint one with food coloring.
Roll out each ball. Brush water onto one and place the other on top. Roll tightly and roll in nonpareils. Wrap log in saran wrap and place in frig for one hour.
Cut with a thin knife (as not to squeeze dough) and bake.......350 for 10 minutes. When cookies DO NOT look wet any longer, they are done. They are very tasty. Enjoy! Kids would love these, and baby shower treats would work out with either pink or blue for the colored dough! Or team colors, green and yellow, etc. FUN!
Roll cookies thinner than we did, and you will have more pattern showing. :)
