Ultimate Sugar Cookies

1 1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Butter Flavored Crisco
2 Eggs
1/4 cup Light corn syrup
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
3 cup All purpose flour
3/4 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine together sugar and Crisco in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Add in eggs, corn syrup and vanilla extract, beating well. Combine together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in another bowl and add gradually to creamed mixture at low speed until well blended. Divide the dough into quarters, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour or until firm enough to roll. Leave unused dough in refrigerator until you are ready to use it. On a well floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out cookies with a well floured cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with colored sugars or leave plain to frost later. Bake at 375 degrees F for 5 to 9 minutes. Cool on baking sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Once cooled, frost if desired.
