  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. In a large bowl, cream together sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and egg.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup, level off. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to creamed mix, mix well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour for easier handling.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. On lightly floured surface, roll out 1/3 of the dough at a time to approximately 1/8 inch thickness (I don't whip out a measuring tape at this point-just an estimation-eyeball to the thickness that you prefer.).
  6. Cut with desired cookie cutters.
  7. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Decorate as desired.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees 5-9 minutes until edges are very light golden. (In my oven, this takes about 6 minutes.) Be careful not to overbake (if you like soft cookies, as I do.).
  9. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
