1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking powder
2 3/4 c. flour
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with mixer.
Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add baking powder and flour, one cup
at a time, mixing after each addition. The dough will be very
stiff. It may be necessary to blend the last flour in by hand.
Do not chill dough.
Divide dough into two balls. On a floured surface, roll
each ball into a circle, approximately 12-inches in diameter.
Dough should be 1/8-inch thick. Dip cookie cutters in flour
before each use. Pick up dough from around cut cookies. Place
cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet with a spatula dipped in
flour. Bake on top rack of 350 degrees oven for 6 to 7 minutes until
cookies are light brown. Remove cookies from sheet immediately
after taking from oven. Then, ice cookies.
