Not Yo Mama's Sugar Cookies

These remain the worlds most sought after and coveted sugar cookies of all time. Fast & Easy, the way we Crandalls like em. I like to dust off the ol kitchen aid for this one. Just start dropping ingredients in with the setting on medium speed.

Preheat oven to 400'
Beat one egg
drop in 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) of soft butter
add 1 tsp vanilla
add 1/4 tsp salt
1 cup of sugar

Combine above ingredients well. Then add in 2 cups of flour, one at a time. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll 1/2 inch thick - yes, 1/2 inch! Cut out with cutters or just use a wide mouth jar like I do.

Bake on foil lined sheet for 6-7 minutes NO LONGER!!! The cookies should look a little undercooked thats the way it must be. Remove immediately from hot pan and transfer to counter top- foil and all.

When cooled frost with your favorite icing. Then hide them somewhere safe. Away from your spouse and children.

How about a good frosting recipe to put with them because that frosting looks as good as the cookies.

The funny thing is, those are just random internet cookies! But they do look good....I will find a great frosting recipe for you. And I will post a real pic of the real cookies as soon as I whip up another batch....
