3/4 C butter (not margarine) 

1 C sugar                                               

2 eggs                                                    

1/2 tsp vanilla

2½ C flour        

1 tsp baking powder

Cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Add baking powder and flour, mix well.

Refrigerate dough for at 1 hour.  Keep any portions not being used in the refrigerator until needed.

Roll dough on  floured surface to between 1/4 and 3/8 inch thickness. (the thicker you leave the dough, the softer the cookie; the thinner the dough the crispier the cookie.)

Cut dough into desired shapes and decorate with colored sugars and decorations.

Bake in a 350° oven for 6-8 minutes.
