Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Divide the dough into two portions, wrap each in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
On a floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1/4-inch thickness.
Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes and place them on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Feel free to decorate the cookies with icing or sprinkles once they are cooled. Enjoy your delicious Sugar Cookies!
