Christmas time baking extravaganza!!

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies: 
1 Cup butter (room Temp) or nuke 15 sec
1 1/2 Cup Sugar, 1 tsp (cap full) Vanilla, 3 eggs, 3 3/4 Cup Flour, Pinch of Salt, 2 tsp Baking powder, 
3/4 tsp baking soda, (Colored Sprinkles and Christmas Music playing in the background). (Drink a Fruit smoothy while baking to get your sweet on.)
In large bowl, beat together butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs, until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder until well blended. Divide dough into equal portions and wrap in Wax paper and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Roll out and cut cookies. spread out on a greased cookie sheet. Add sprinkles before baking and after cook frosting and add sprinkles. let sit over night with frosting on it in a tupperware and they are heavenly tasty!
Baking time: 350 degrees or (175c) Greased Cookie sheet, Bake 7-9 minutes.
While I'm waiting for the dough to firm up in the refrigerator, Im going to make my pumpkin bread, and other cookies recipes.
I'll share cookies pictures afterward.  This recipe is from an old Betty Crocker cookbook.
