I should also mention that this cookie recipe, minus the pink frosting, is my go to shaped/ cut-out cookie recipe- even over a traditional sugar cookie. It's just that good (and really what cookie with a whole CUP of butter wouldn't be good!).
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1. Mix first six ingredients with electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually stir in flour by hand until well mixed.
2. Chill for 2 to 3 hours in refrigerator, or in freezer for half an hour.
3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Roll out half the dough at a time, leaving remainder in fridge to keep cook. Roll to about a 1/4 inch thick and then cut out with cookie cutters and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 6-10 minutes, until edges of cookie are a light brown.
Enjoy! (our little one's sure did!)
