I love this recipe. One adds the liquid to the flour mixture. The dough is a great consistency and easy for the little ones to roll out and cut - almost like "Play dough." It also has a great flavor! My cousin Gayla shared her mother's recipe on the Nyborg family's My Family web site a couple of years ago. Thanks Gayla!
Wil’s Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 cubes real butter
4 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4-1 t. nutmeg (your family's preference)
1/2 t. salt
1 T. vanilla
Beat sugar and butter together until fluffy. Add flour, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder.
(It will seem like pie dough before you add the liquid.)
In at least a 1 cup measuring cup, beat the two eggs. Add the vanilla, then enough cream to make one cup. Pour a stream of this mixture into flour and butter mixture.
Roll out and bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Cool and frost.
(Or freeze and frost later.)
Number Of Servings: 3-4 dozen
My modifications: I double this recipe and mix in my Bosch mixer. Buy a pint of cream if doubling recipe. I use left over cream in the icing for cookies:
1 pound powdered sugar
1/2 stick of softened butter
1 t. of vanilla
cream (enough to make right spreading consistency)
