Simply Delicious Sugar Cookies

Vanilla Sugar Cookies. One of the very few 'sweet' treats I sometimes crave. While I'm usually all for the vegetables over sweets, I've had my mind on little simple sugar cookies this week and tonight my plans changed from what I thought I would be doing, so instead, I whipped up a batch. They are so incredibly easy and delicious I had to share. This recipe is an oldie that your Great-Great Grandmothers probably made... but it's goodness is timeless.

Sugar Cookies

2 c flour
1 t baking power
1/4 t salt
1/4 t fresh grated nutmeg
3/4 c butter (softened)
3/4 c sugar
1 egg
1 T milk
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Beat the butter and sugar by hand with a wooden spoon or rubber scraper until blended and light. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg and add to the butter/sugar mixture. Drop by tablespoons onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with a fork. Sprinkle with sugar or sprinkles. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Freeze well in a tight container. (Makes about 3 dozen).
