Sugar Cookies For Valentine's Day

Sugar cookies are a triple threat: fun to make, delicious to eat and make great gifts no matter the holiday! I love this recipe because the cookies are flavorful and the frosting is zesty - just an overall winning combination!

Makes 8 dozen

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup milk
3-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Cream butter. Add sugar and cream again. Add unbeaten egg yolks and beat all. 
  2. In another bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.
  3. Add milk and fold in sifted dry ingredients. Add vanilla. 
  4. Put dough in a ziplock bag and press it flat. Put it in the refrigerator to chill overnight. 
  5. Bake at 375ºF for 10 minutes. 

Add lemon juice to powdered sugar until it's spreading consistency.
