Preheat oven to 375°F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cream together sugar, butter and eggs until light and fluffy.
Add remaining ingredients. Only add enough flour to make a soft dough.
Chill dough for at least an hour. Dough can be chilled overnight.
Roll chilled dough out on a lightly floured surface until 1/4"-1/2" thick, then cut with your choice of cookie cutters.
Place cut cookie dough on baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Do not brown cookies or they will be overdone.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Once cookies are completely cool, frost with your favorite frosting, decorate as desired then enjoy!
Remove the cookies from the oven earlier than you think you should. Sugar cookies tend to go from done to over done very quickly.Work with half of your dough at a time, leaving the other half to continue chilling in the fridge until you’re ready to work with it.If the dough gets warm, put it back in the fridge to chill for a few minutes before you roll it out and bake the cookies.You can freeze the dough by wrapping it in plastic wrap then putting it in an airtight plastic zipper bag with the air squeezed out. Or you can freeze individual cookies once baked but before frosted. To thaw, just put out on the counter for 15-20 minutes or until they are thawed and ready to enjoy.
