SUGAR COOKIE ROLLOUTS
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Mix flour, baking powder and salt; add gradually to butter mixure, stirring constantly. Do not chill the dough. Working in batches on a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut out cookies using a decorative cookie cutter and bake for 6-7 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen cookies, but the amount depends upon the size of the cookie cutter.
3 egg whites
1-1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
3 to 3-1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
Beat egg whites until foamy, add cream of tartar and whip until peaks form. Add confectioner's sugar. Beat 5 minutes.
That's it. Now go to work and create something wonderful.
