Difficulty: Easy
Calories: 2094 Kcal | ProPoints: 55

Ingredients:

2 sticks of butter
1.5 cups of sugar
5 cups of sifted flour
4 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Sugar cookie recipe:

Sugar cookie recipe is very simple and yet delicious.

It is cooked by my mom for at least 2 decades now. The recipe is good for any occasion: Christmas and Valentine's Day, New Year or Halloween.

Step 2: Take the 2 sticks of butter and cut them in small pieces. If you just took the butter out of the fridge, then let it soften a little, so that you could work with it. (It takes 15-20 minutes)

To you softened and chopped butter add the 1.5 cups of sugar. Mix the butter and sugar very well, until it will start forming one butter-sugary mix.

Then add 2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar or vanilla extract.

Add to the mix 4 large eggs and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Mix everything very well.

Finally, add 4.5 cups of sifted flour. Mix very well until the dough will form. (If you see that the dough is not too hard then add another 0.5 cup of flour if you feel that you will be able to knead it and then cut the cookies out then leave as it is.

It is important to put this dough in a fridge for at least an hour or overnight, then it will be easier to work with. Put the dough in a fridge for an hour.

In 1 hour, take the dough out of the fridge, cut in 3 parts, knead each one a little and then roll out the layer and cut your cookies. (the layer should be about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick)
