Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, beat the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. Add green food coloring until you reach the desired shade of Grinch-green.

Combine Mixtures: Gradually blend in the dry ingredients until just combined.

Shape Cookies: Roll the dough into balls, about 1 tablespoon each.

Coat in Powdered Sugar: Roll each ball in powdered sugar, fully coating them.

Bake: Place them on the prepared baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until they puff up and crackle.

Cool: Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are not only delicious but also visually striking with their bright green color, making them a hit especially for Christmas parties and as treats inspired by the famous Dr. Seuss character, the Grinch. Enjoy your baking!
