Make and Bake Your Do You Bake? Sugar Cookies
1In a large bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs and when combined add the vanilla. Add the contents of Do You Bake? sugar Cookies package and beat together until smooth. Cover and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight). When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). After allowing mixture to sit for about 5 minutes to make it more pliable, roll out dough on floured surface to 1/4" to 1/2" (6mm to 13mm) thickness. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Sprinkle with granulated sugar or sanding sugar (optional) and lightly press into cookie. Place cookies 1” (25mm) apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool slightly then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
