I know Sara just posted a sugar cookie recipe, but I just had to post this one too. We went caroling this past week (with Relief Society and Young Women). One of the people we sang to had made these cookies for us. She gave me the recipe on Sunday and I promptly made two batches on Monday. Today our good friends came over and helped us frost and sprinkle them. So fun! And so incredibly delicious and easy.
2 cups sugar
2 cups butter, softened
4 teaspoons vanilla
6 teaspoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons dry vanilla pudding mix (optional--will help cookies stay soft)
7 cups flour
Cream butter and sugar. Add other ingredients and mix thoroughly. Roll 1/4" to 1/2" thick (your preference). Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
Merry Christmas everyone!
