Sugar Cookies

I've baked cookies before, but these were cut out into festive shapes,
well, into the shape of snowmen.

I made these in advance of the season, as I wanted to test it out.  Here is
the recipe:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
2.In a small bowl, stir together:
   2-3/4 cups flour
   1 tsp baking soda
   1/2 tsp baking powder
3. In a large bowl cream together until smooth:
   1 cup softened butter
   1-1/2 cups sugar
4. Beat into large bowl mixture:
   1 egg
   1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
5. Slowly take ingredients from the small bowl and blend them into the larger
6. Roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes as desired (or just
roll into rounded teaspoon size balls) and then place on ungreased cookie
7. Place in oven 8 to 10 minutes
8.Remove from oven and let them cool in cookie sheets for a couple minutes
9. Remove cookie and let them cool on wire racks

Icing or colored sugar could be added for decoration
