  1. Directions Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl and sift them twice. Place the butter in the large bowl of the electric stand mixer and beat until light. While doing this, gradually add in the sugar at intervals. Next, add the eggs and milk and continue to beat. Set the mixer on low speed, and add spoonfuls of flour mixture. Continue to whisk until the batter no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. Split the dough into equal halves and wrap them in waxed paper. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease your baking sheet with butter. Sprinkle powdered sugar onto a clean, dry, and flat surface, which you will use to roll out the dough on. Take one of the wrapped packs of dough from refrigerator, and shape it into a ball. Then sprinkle some powdered sugar on the rolling pin, and using light pressure, roll out dough to ¼'' thick pancake. While doing this, keep moving/rotating the dough to ensure that it is not sticking. If the dough has become slightly warm during rolling, place it on the cold cookie sheet for about 10 minutes, in which time it should cool down. Cut the dough into desired shapes. If you are using a cookie cutter, first dip it in flour. Position your cookies on a greased baking sheet, parchment, or silicone baking mat with about an inch of space between each. Bake the cookies for until they begin to turn brown around the edges, for approximately 7 to 9 minutes. However, remember to rotate the cookie sheet after about 3 or 4 minutes of baking. Once done, remove from oven and allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for 2 minutes or so. Subsequently, move to wire rack for complete cooling. You can store them in an airtight container for about 1 week. Read more on: How to Make Sugar Cookies Sugar Cookie Recipes Sugar Cookie Recipes for Kids Cookie Recipes from Scratch
