Cutlers Sugar Cookies with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Have any of you ever been to Cutlers in Layton or Bountiful!??  Their cookies are so delicious.  I (Joni) had the opportunity to go take a class from them to learn how their sugar cookies are made!  This Sugar Cookie recipe is seriously the best!  Sugar Cookies are not just for the holidays anymore once you try these.  You will find yourself making them all the time.

Cutlers Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 cups Butter 
3 eggs
 2 cups sugar 
2 tsp vanilla 
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
 5 cups cake flour 

Cream the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs and the vanilla mix until well blended.  Add the dry ingredients.  Notice that the flour is cake flour and not just regular flour.  Once that is all mixed well gather dough in a ball and chill the dough for about an hour before you roll it out.  This makes it much easier to work with.  Roll dough out about a 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter.  Place on pan and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until the tops of the cookies are slightly cracked and the edges are very lightly browned.  

Butter Cream Frosting

1 cup butter
4-5 cups powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Beat butter until soft.  Add milk and vanilla.  Slowly add in powdered sugar.  May need more or less powdered sugar depending on the consistency that you like.
