First, mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
Combine melted butter and sugar until sugar is dissolved, in another bowl.
Also add the milk and vanilla extract to the butter sugar mixture and mix well to combine.
Transfer the wet ingredients mixture to the bowl containing the dry flour mixture, and mix well using your hands to form the cookie dough.
In case its difficult to get the right texture and consistency needed for cookie dough, you can add a little oil (one tablespoon at a time) and knead again to make the dough.
Refrigerate cookie dough for about 30 minutes.
To roll the cookies:
Add a little flour to a flat surface(where you are going to work with the cookie dough) and let's start rolling the dough.
Roll the dough flat (about ¼ inch thick) using a rolling pin and cut out any shapes using cookie cutters.
You may need to add more flour if needed (one tablespoon flour at a time), to roll the dough perfectly so you can easily cut out the cookies.
For example, if the dough is little sticky, it may be difficult to roll and cut the cookies, so you will need to add little more flour, as you roll the dough.
Once the cookies are cut out from the rolled dough, you can knead and roll the remaining dough again and make more cookie shapes.
Keep in mind that you will need to bake the cookies in two batches since you cannot overcrowd the cookie sheet, so once you have made enough cookie shapes for the first batch, you can refrigerate the remaining dough (after kneading the remaining dough) until its ready to roll and make the cookies again.
You may also make round cookies by making cookie balls and just pressing the balls gently with your palm.
To bake the cookies:
Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
Layer a cookie sheet with parchment paper of aluminium foil and place the cut out cookies in a single layer (you may also add colorful sprinkles to the cookies). Make sure not to place the cookies too close.
Bake the cookies in the oven for about ten minutes. To make the cookies crunchy and crispy, you can bake them for a couple more minutes.
Every oven is different, so you may need to adjust the cooking times slightly as needed.
Once the sugar cookies are baked, immediately transfer the baked cookies from the oven to avoid over baking of the cookies (which will make them hard).
When the cookies are taken out of the oven, they will look too soft, but give enough time for the cookies to cool down and they will turn out perfect!
Once the cookies are cooled completely, transfer the cookies to the cookie jars or serve them with a cup of coffee, tea or milk!
Similarly make cookies from the remaining cookie dough too.
