The Best Ever Sugar Cookie Recipe

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

*in a medium-size bowl, mix the flour and salt.
*in a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar, stir in the egg, then the corn syrup and vanilla extract.
*One third at a time, add the flour mixture until thoroughly mixed. Pat the dough into two balls, wrap them in plastic wrap.
*Refrigerate 1-2 hours or overnight.
--If the dough is too firm, soften at room temperature for a few minutes.

*Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
*Roll the dough to about 1/4 thickness between 2 pieces of waxed paper (don't flour a surface, added extra flour is not good for this recipe).

Spray the cookie cutters with Pam and let the kids cut out the cookies.

Place the cut out cookies on a lightly greased pan and bake 8 to 10 minutes (leave about an inch or so between cookies)

Let them cool completely before icing. 

Let them decorate with sprinkles, gumdrops, crushed peppermint or whatever you have on hand.
