sugar cookie recipe

Looking for a sugar cookie recipe that bakes up very soft and feathery. The cookie has little bubbles and is full of little lacy holes. Very light cookie. I bought them from a bake sale so I was not able to get the recipe. Got any ideas? Very grateful for your help.

Hey there Bertha!

This is one of my favorite Sugar Cookie recipes. It cooks up soft and chewy. I hope it's what you are looking for.

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, use a mixer to cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition.

Stir in the vanilla.

Gradually add the flour mixture until well combined.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Grease your cookie sheets.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Break off about 1/4 of the dough. Re-wrap the remaining dough and put it back into the refrigerator until ready to use.

Roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface. Use cookie cutters that have been dipped in flour to cut into desired shapes.

Repeat, until all dough has been used.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated 350° oven, or until the just barely begin to brown.

Remove cookies and cool on a wire rack.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
