Hi my loves!
Yall enjoying this weather? I think… THINK Spring is finally here to stay! We received another request, and these any occasion sugar cookies make enough to feed the masses! Perfect for those upcoming family reunions or back to school lunch snack for your little ones (orrrr “just because” works too lol!) I have a few friends that love these, so try them for yours and watch how quickly you become their favorite person
To the kitchen…
4½ cups all-purpose flour (for cookies I like King Arthur brand)
4½ tsp. baking powder
¾ tsp. salt
1½ cups (approx 3 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
¼ cups cinnamon
3 large eggs
5 tsp. vanilla
To make the cookies, preheat the oven to 350˚ F and have cooled your pans in the refrigerator for at least 20 mins (oldschool baker’s trick). In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt, and whisk together to blend. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and 1 ½ sugar and beat together on medium-high speed until soft and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine remanding sugar with cinnamon, mix well and set aside. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping down the bowl as needed. Blend in the vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, add in the dry ingredients mixing just until incorporated and evenly mixed. Cover and chill the dough for 1 hour.
