Patty Davis’ Sugar Cookies (our favorite recipe)

1 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
3 Tbsp. cold water
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 c. flour

Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, water, and vanilla and mix well.  In a separate bowl, sift the salt, baking soda, and flour together, then add to the butter mixture.  Roll dough into a disc between sheets of parchment paper and place in a large ziplock bag.  Chill in fridge for a few hours at least.  Roll out thin and cut shapes.  Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack and spread with frosting.

frosting:

2 1/4 c. powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 tsp. butter
food coloring (optional)

Mix all together, adding powdered sugar gradually.
