No-Chill Sugar Cookies

I love sugar cookies, but I can't stand having to wait for them to chill before cutting and baking them. That's where this recipe is a lifesaver! Make your dough, cut and frost your cookies, and you're done!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
2 t. baking powder
3 cups flour 

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 T. vanilla
1/2 bag powdered sugar

 First, cream your butter and sugar together.

 Beat in the egg, vanilla, and baking powder.

 Sift in the flour one cup at a time and mix between each addition.

 Take half of the dough and roll it out on a layer of waxed paper.

 Dip your cookie cutters in flour before using.

 Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375* for 5 minutes. Pull out, turn around, and bake for another 2 minutes.

 It's always best to have some little helpers around!

 Meanwhile, make your frosting. Melt butter and add vanilla.

 Then add powdered sugar and milk. Don't get it too thin!

 If you want, you can always divide it into bowls and use different colors. After your cookies have cooled, frost 'em! 

Store in air-tight containers at room temperature.
Have fun!
