I love soft sugar cookies! That is one treat I have NO control of. When I’m pregnant, I can really eat them all day long. If you are looking for an easy sugar cookie recipe, you have got to try these cookies!
In a large bowl, cream together butter and granulated sugar. Mix in eggs and vanilla until combined. Then add your salt, baking powder and flour. Mix until the batter is lump free.
Cover and chill for at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Roll cookies into balls and flatten a little. Try and make your cookies all the same size. (You could use a medium size cookie scoop also.)
Bake for 10-11 minutes (check at 8 minutes and watch them) You want them a little golden brown on the bottom. Remove from cookie sheet about 1 minute after cooking them.
When cookies have completely cooled, prepare frosting. In a medium bowl, beat together the powdered sugar and butter until creamy. Add vanilla and 1 Tbsp milk at a time until your frosting reaches desired consistency.
Frost cookies and top with sprinkles. Let your frosting set. Once it is set, store in an air tight container.
