Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together and set aside. In a large bowl,
cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs
one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Gradually blend in the sifted
ingredients until fully absorbed. Cover dough, and chill for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease cookie sheets. On a clean floured surface, roll
out small portions of chilled dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes
using cookie cutters. Sprinkle with decorator sparkling sugar. Bake 6 to 8
minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are barely brown. Remove from
cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
Decorator Sparkling Sugar:
3 cups sugar
1 cup food coloring
Preheat oven to 150F. Stir sugar and food coloring together and spread the
mixture in a shallow baking pan. Place the sugar in the oven for 20 minutes,
stirring every 5 minutes. Remove when the liquid has evaporated. Cool. Store
sugar in a tightly-covered jar.
