Christmas Butter Cookies (shiela Exner)
I think these are the best
I've ever made -- Pat
1 c butter 1 c sugar 1 egg 1 Tbsp milk 1 tsp vanilla 2 3/4 c flour 1
tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt
Cream butter, gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffly.
Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and
salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Chill for ease in handling.
Roll out dough to 1/8" 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.
