Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1/4 cup colored decorating sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Combine flour, salt and baking powder - stir well. Place flour mixture in a clean mason jar. Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet.) Stir sugar and colored sugar together, add to the jar.

2. Put the lid on the jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. You can add a personalized label, if you wish. As an added touch, tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon.

Print out the following instructions on a gift card and tape the card to the jar:

Whip 2/3 cup of butter or shortening until light and fluffy.
Add 2 eggs, 2 Tbsp. milk and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat until mixed.
Stir in the ingredients from this jar until well combined.
Roll into small balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Flatten each ball slightly with a fork or the bottom of a glass.
Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees F.
