I used to have my grandmother’s recipe box. Somewhere, somehow in all our military moves it got lost in the shuffle. It is this time of year that I miss being able to pull out that recipe box with her treasured cookie recipes. One of the recipes that I missed was her sugar cookie recipe. I had remembered she had written “Tupperware Sugar Cookie Recipe” on the top of her card. Thankfully, a friend of mine had the recipe. She tells me that it was the recipe her mom made as well.
Preheat oven 375 degrees.
Cream sugar and butter with mixer until fluffy. Add egg and flavorings and mix well. Sift dry ingredients together; stir into creamed mixture. Cover in a Tupperware (wink wink) bowl and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours
Divide dough in half. Roll out on a surface lightly dusted with confectioners sugar. Cut with cookie cutters and placed on ungreased cookie sheets.
Have fun with the colored sprinkles but keep or remove the sprinkles off the baking sheet or bake without sprinkles to decorate with an icing or glaze. Sprinkles is just the tradition in my family!
Bake for 7 to 8 minutes until cookies begin turning a light brown at edges. Cool on wired cooling racks.
