Mom's Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies
Cream together:
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
6 eggs

Add and mix together:
6 tsp. baking powder
7 cups flour
4 tsp. vanilla

Mix dough and roll out onto floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Cool and frost.

Butter cream Frosting:
2/3 cup butter, cold and firm
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2-3 Tbsp. milk or cream

Place butter in small bowl. Using electric beater, beat several minutes until creamy. Add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time and beat well after each addition. Add vanilla, then milk, a little at a time and beat well again. (May be refrigerated in an air-tight container. Whip before using again.)

NOTES:We made these for the different holidays and decorated them accordingly. We also passed them out on treat plates at Christmas time.
