These are my St. Patty's Day sugar cookies in all their green food-colored glory. I love this sugar cookie recipe. It's from one of my best friend's moms growing up. Thanks CF!
1 ¼ cups butter
2 cups sugar
5 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup milk
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs. Add remaining ingredients, alternating flour and milk, and blend gently.
Wrap in saran wrap and refrigerate for ½ an hour.
Roll out in shapes and bake at 350’ for 8-12 minutes.
Make frosting by beating together 8 oz cream cheese and 1/2 a stick of butter. Add powdered sugar until desired consistency and a small amount of extract, if desired. I use powdered vanilla so it stays white and thick. Decorate cooled cookies.
