Holiday Sugar Cookies

1 cup Butter or margarine (softened)
3/4 cup Sugar
1 Egg
2 cups All purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
Assorted colored sugars (for decoration)

Beat together the butter and sugar in large bowl using electric mixer until creamy. Add in the egg, beating until fluffy. Stir in the flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt until well blended. Form dough into a ball and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill in refrigerator several hours or until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll dough to a 1/4 inch thickness on lightly floured surface using a floured rolling pin. For best results, use only a quarter piece of dough at a time, keeping the rest chilling in the fridge until you are ready to use it. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter. Sprinkle with colored sugars, as desired. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes until edges are lightly golden browned. Cool slightly on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
