Fast sugar cookies!

I recently came across this recipe from AllRecipes, and decided to make it right then and there.
Original recipe makes 5 dozen and, really, who doesn't want 5 DOZEN cookies, right?
Just have a party, or pass them out in the neighborhood! 

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

1.In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.

2.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter (this time I just used a glass.) Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

3.Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

4. Ice those babies (I use powdered sugar, vanilla, and a teeny bit of milk), sprinkle generously, and EAT!
