Prep:
Level: Easy
Yield: 20 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 c. all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
  2. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy and pale in color. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until combined, then add flour mixture gradually until totally combined.
  3. Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. When ready to roll, preheat oven to 350º. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll out dough until 1/8” thick. Cut out shapes and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Freeze 10 minutes (so your shapes hold while baking!).
  5. Bake until edges are lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a cooling rack.
  7. Once cool, frost.
