OLD FASHIONED SUGAR COOKIES

These are large, oversized vanilla sugar cookies which are similar to the ones we could get at the bakery when I was a child.

OLD FASHIONED SUGAR COOKIES

Cream together 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar.  Blend in 2 eggs, 4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 4 teaspoons baking power.  Chill dough, then roll out to 1/4 inch thickness.  Cut out with a one pound coffee can which has been dipped in flour to prevent sticking.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.  The cookies should not be too brown!  Yields about 3 dozen cookies.
