Cutler's Sugar Cookies...

I found this amazing copycat recipe on pinterest...I must say that they are as close as it gets to a scrumptious Cutler's sugar cookie...Have fun making them!

Cutler's Sugar Cookie:

3 sticks butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
5 cups cake flour

Mix butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well, scraping sides of bowl.  Add salt, baking powder and cake flour.  Chill dough.

When dough is ready, preheat oven to 350 degrees and roll out dough about as thick as a pencil and cut out into shapes.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.  They don't look done but may have some cracks on top and a little brown on the bottom edges.  I found that even though I cooked most of them at 13 minutes, it was a smidge too long.  They continue to set up after they are out of the oven.

Icing: (My recipe)

Powdered sugar
Karo syrup
flavoring (Almond, lemon etc.)

Get about 3 cups of powdered sugar in a bowl and add maybe 2 Tbsp. Karo.  Add some water and whisk it around adding more water if needed.  The consistency should be like the Karo syrup.  Add your flavoring, in this case I used Almond, and any colors you want.  When cookies are cooled, dip them upside down into the icing, scraping the excess off on the sides of the bowl and put them on a cooling rack so the icing will drip down around the cookie.  Decorate.
