Categories: Cakes / Cookies / Desserts

1/2  c  Butter
1  c  Granulated sugar
1    Egg
1  tb  Cream
1  t  Vanilla
2  c  Flour
1/2  ts  Baking powder

Serve these not-too-sweet cookies in the traditional English fashion with your favorite cup of tea. They are delicious with a dab of jam or marmalade and hold up well when dunking. In a bowl, cream butter with sugar until very light. Add well beaten egg, cream and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift flour with baking powder; add creamed mixture and blend well. Roll dough into a log and wrap in aluminum foil. Chill overnight, or in freezer for 2 hours if rushed for time. Preheat oven to 350. Remove dough from refrigerator, slice very thin and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake 5-8 minutes at 350. Variations: For various holidays decorate with colored sugar, beads or icing. Or substitute almond or lemon extract for the vanilla to vary the flavor. Yield: 10 dozen. Suzanne J. Brown, owner SBJ Communications, Skillman, NJ Randy Shearer
