Sugar Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 to 2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp milk or cream
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
icing sugar for dusting rolling pin and counter

Cream the butter and the sugar together until light. Add the eggs
and the vanilla. Beat until fluffy, and add the milk. In a separate
bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt two times.
Beat the flour mixture until well mixed. Then wrap the dough in
wax paper or plastic wrap and chill it for at least 1 hour. (I
chill it for at least 2-3)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and butter cookie sheets. Divide
dough into manageable amounts for rolling out. Dust rolling surface,
rolling pin, and dough with icing sugar. Roll dough out to 1/8-inch
thickness (or thicker if preferred), cut out with cutter, place on
cookie sheet, and bake for about 8 minutes until faintly browned
around the edges. Watch carefully for overbrowning. Cool on racks.
