3/4 C butter (not margarine)
1 C sugar
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.
