I make these sugar cookies at least once over the holidays.  It’s fun to decorate with the kids and you can make so many different shapes and colors these days.  Last year my oldest was given these assorted cookie cutters as a gift to play with. 
We use them for playdough and cookies!  They have every theme you’ll need and are color-coded. 
What You Will Need:
2/3 C unsalted butter
¾ C sugar
2 C flour
2 T flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder

2)      In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt with fork.  Add to wet ingredients.
3)      Chill for at least an hour.
