There are many different sugar cookies recipes out there - ranging from soft and chewy to crisp and biscuity. I used a combined adaptation from i am baker and Alton Brown; yields 2 dozen regular size cookies and about 100 mini cookies.
- 3/4 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 Tbsp milk
- 1 teasp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teasp salt
- ½ teasp baking powder
- powdered sugar for rolling (optional)
- colored sugar crystals or icing for decorating (optional)
- Wrap dough in saran wrap and chill in the fridge for an hour (or more).
