Health Highlights


1 cup Butter, unsalted (unsalted then add the salt OR salted and omit the extra salt)
1 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
2 large Egg
2 tsp Vanilla extract, imitation, no alcohol (can use almond extract if you wish)
3 1/2 cup All-purpose white flour
1/4 tsp Salt (omit IF you used salted butter)
1 tsp Baking powder


In electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.

Add flour, salt (if you used unsalted butter) and baking powder and beat until smooth.

Place dough in the fridge for 10 minutes (this makes it easier to roll and transfer onto baking sheets).

Roll out dough (remember to flour your work surface) and use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes.

Place on cookie sheets and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.


Some bakers believe that placing the cut out cookies that are on the baking sheets in the fridge for 10 minutes will prevent spreading, however, I don’t find this necessary with this recipe.
