Remember to put the Love in... 

4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Colored Icing, recipe followsPreheat oven to 350 degrees F.   In a
bowl, stir together flour and baking powder. In another bowl, beat butter
with sugar until fluffy and light. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in
flour mixture, a third at a time to make a stiff dough. Divide dough into
4 pieces. Roll out a portion of cookie dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out
shapes using cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased or nonstick
cookie sheets. Bake until lightly golden, about 10 minute, rotating baking
sheet halfway through cooking time. Cool completely on pans about 5
minutes, transfer to cooling racks and cool completely before decorating.

Colored Icing:
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons water
3 to 4 drops food coloring, plus more as needed
Colored sprinkles, optional

In a small bowl, mix sugar and water to form a thick, smooth
icing. Stir in food coloring to reach desired shade. Drop icing onto
cookies using a small teaspoon and smooth with the back of the spoon. Make
additional bowls for additional colors.

Additional multi-colored sprinkles can be added on top of icing
before it dries for more decorative cookies, if desired.
