I am Galia from Israel and I am sending you a recipe for the best sugar cookies that everyone loves! They're best if you make them with cookie cutters with different shapes (animals, people... etc.) Good luck!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2/3 cup butter
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Beat butter or margarine with white and brown sugars. Add both of the eggs and the vanilla (you don't HAVE to have vanilla, you can do without it).
Add dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) and beat until well mixed.
Cover and put in refrigerator for an hour.
After an hour, roll on a flat, floured surface and cut with cookie cutters (try many different shapes and sizes!) Bake at a medium heat (180 degrees C, 375 degrees F) for about 10 minutes (until you like their color). Good luck!
