These are classic and simple – not to mention the batter is phenomenal. This recipe makes quite a lot of cookies – about 3 dozen.


3 cups of flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

1 cup butter

1 egg, lightly beaten

3 tbsp half and half

2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into large bowl.

Add in the butter and blend in pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.

Add in egg, vanilla, and half and half.

Chill dough for 1 hour for easier rolling.

On floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutter to cut out shapes.

Place shapes on baking sheet. Bake for 6-7 minutes, or until lightly brown.
