Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted Butter – at toom temperature
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup White Flour
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

Directions:

Preheat oven at 350 deg F. 

Beat the butter with the sugar in a medium sized bowl. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until you get a uniform texture.

Mix the flour and baking powder and gradually blend them into the mixture. When you’re done, you should have a rather sticky dough.

Shape the dough into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Roll them in sugar and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet,  leaving about an inch of space between each cookie. This is to ensure they don’t stick together they they expand.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 deg F for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven, let cool for a while, and start eating right away! 🙂
