Great Grandma’s AMAZING Sugar Cookies!

I know we don’t do a lot of recipes around here (we’ve only had one when we first started blogging) but I really wanted to share these yummmmy treats! My son and I made these with my Great Grandmother, his Great GREAT Grandmother (CRAZY HUH?) on Monday and they were soooooo good! Especially with some frosting swirled on top! Oh man! You have GOT to try these! They are super duper easy and yum yum yummy!
Great Grandma’s Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. water
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
4+ cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Cream butter and sugar; add vanilla, eggs and water. Sift dry ingredients (add more flour to make a slightly sticky dough; add to mixture. Refrigerate for an hour or so for easier rolling. Roll and cut into shapes. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Frost, decorate and store ASAP to keep them moist! 
That’s it! SO easy and they were scrumptious! 
My grandmother got this recipe from an old ward cookbook and this recipe was from a sister in her Relief Society. 
Give these a try and let me know what you think!
‘au revoir,
