Heart Sugar Cookies

While snowed in today, we decided to get in the Valentine's Day spirit and make some cookies!
Basic sugar cookies with lots of holiday sprinkles!!

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
egg wash= 1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp water

Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Then add flour and baking powder and mix until well incorporated. Put dough on a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap, roll into a disc and wrap up with wax paper. Refrigerate 2 hours or until ready to make cookies.
Preheat oven to 375. On a floured surface, roll out some or all of the dough using a rolling pin and use cookie cutters to shape cookies. Place cookies on cookie sheet, brush with egg wash, and decorate with sprinkles. Bake 375 for 7-8 minutes.
Cool on cooling rack and enjoy!
