Holiday Butter Cookies


4 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1. Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
2. Add flour and baking powder. Mix well.
3. Put dough in a cookie press or drop a well rounded tablespoon on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press down with a fork. You can sprinkle colored nonpareils on top. Brush each cookie with a little milk for nonpareils to stick.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Check after 12 minutes, as you don’t want the cookies to burn on the bottom.
