1 tsp Vanilla
2 cups Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
*Cream butter, sugar, milk and vanilla in a
large bowl at low speed until well blended. Beat in egg. Combine flour, baking
powder and salt. Mix into creamed mixture at low speed until well blended.
Cover and refrigerate a few hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 375°. Roll
out dough, half at a time, on floured surface to 1/8” thickness. Cut into
desired shapes. Place two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle
with colored sugars and decors or leave plain to frost when cool. Bake 7-9

Creamy Vanilla Frosting
Combine 1/2 cup Butter, 4 cups of Icing Sugar, 1/3 cup Milk and 1 tsp
**Vanilla in a medium bowl. Beat at low speed of an electric mixer until well
blended. Scrape bowl. Beat at high speed for two minutes or until smooth and
creamy. One or two drops of food color can be used to tint each cup of
frosting. Frost cooled cookies.
**Substitute other extracts or my fave is mint
extract and 3-4 crushed candy canes or other festive colored candy.
On a personal note
I use these for all occasions. Valentine's Day you can add red food coloring
to the frosting, and cut the cookies out into hearts. Halloween, add
yellow/red food coloring and make pumpkins!
Use your imagination. These are great and can be frozen! I actually like them
better after they have been frozen!

1 cup Butter
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup Cornstarch
1/2 cup Icing Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
*Beat butter until foamy. Add dry ingredients, then vanilla. Drop by teaspoon on to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until light golden at 300-350°.
I like to put a 1/4 of a red or green candied cherry on the top in the middle, or the candy silver balls. It makes them look so festive.
These will melt in your mouth!
