Christmas Eve Cookies

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetA tradition started with Ezra that I intend to carry on for years to come. A simple sugar cookie dough made on Christmas Eve morning. Chilled for the afternoon. Baked and decorated in the evening. We will have a few with hot cocoa, leave several out for the man with the bag, and take the rest to family on Christmas Day.


1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

2 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 tsp baking powder

Mix butter and sugar, beat in eggs and vanilla, stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover and chill for at 2+ hours. Preheat oven to 375, place on parchment lined cookie sheet, bake 6-8 minutes. Cool completely before decorating.
