No Fail Sugar Cookie Dough

No Fail Sugar Cookies

2 Cups Unsalted Butter, room temperature
2 Cups Sugar
2 tsp vanilla  or almond flavoring
2 eggs
6 Cups of Flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt


Cream the butter and sugar until Light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.  Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture and mix until the dough comes together and pulls away from the sides.

Wrap in saran wrap (There is so much dough that I split it in two and then wrap in saran wrap).   Chill the dough in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour up to 6 days.

Preheat the oven to 350*.   Roll dough on parchment paper and use the saran wrap that you had wrapped it with on top so you don't need any additional flour to roll (so parchment on the bottom, then dough, then saran wrap, then the rolling pin).  Cut into desired shapes and pull away extra dough to be re-rolled.  While rolling the dough place the cookie sheet in the freezer to cool.  Put the cookie covered parchment on the cold cookie sheet and put in the oven for 8-10 minutes.  You know the cookies are done if the edges around the cookies are slightly brown.

This is a large recipe.  It makes up to 5 dozen 3 inch cookies.  Can easily be halved.   Enjoy!
