Butter Cookies

Although these cookies are usually served during the Christmas holidays, there's no reason why you can't have them all year round.


  • 1 Cup of butter

  • 1 Cup of sugar

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 Tbsp. of milk

  • 1 Tsp. of vanilla extract

  • 2 3/4 Cups of all-purpose flour

  • 1 Tsp. of baking powder

  • 1/4 Tsp. of salt

Cream butter, gradually adding sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla extract.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture.

Chill for at least 30 minutes. Roll out dough to 1/8 (approx) thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut with
floured cookie cutters into desired shapes.

Bake on a cookie sheet in preheated 350 F oven 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
