How to make Sparkling Sugar Cookies

Sorry for the bad camera phone photo! I used this recipe when my mixer broke, since it only needs to be mixed/stirred by hand. These sugar cookies are easy to make, pretty and tasty. Even after I got a new mixer, I made them again and received rave reviews each time :)

1) preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) microwave butter and sugar until soft but not liquid; mix well.

3) add vanilla and beaten egg.

4) sift together dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.

5) add butter/sugar/vanilla/egg mixture and mix well.

6) chill dough for 30 minutes to 1 hour

7) roll dough (1 heaping tbsp) into balls and dip or roll in decorative/colored sugar

8) arrange on ungreased baking sheet, about 2 inches apart

9) bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden but not brown
