Sugar Cookies

These are super good, and perfect for icing and christmas. They were actually pretty easy to make. I figured out a way to roll out the dough, cut out the shapes, and put them on the pan without messing up the shape because they become too soft. Since the weather here is so humid, (even during the winter,) hawaii has the same temp all the time..duh, i rolled the dough out between plastic wrap after making it, after I rolled it into nice sheets, i stuck it in the freezer, by the time i was done rolling out all the dough, the first dough sheet i put in was firm enough to be cut out. the dough was slightly frozen, but not so much they wouldn't cut, and just enough they held their shape for the seconds it took me to press the cookie cutter and transfer the cookie.

1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
