I know it is January, but here goes the recipe I mod to fit my needs.
225 grams of unsalted butter (or the whole tablet) at room temperature
1 1/2 cups of confectioner’s (powdered or icing) sugar
1 egg at room temperature
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
3 cups (you may have to add 3 tablespoons to that) of all-purpose flour
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add eggs and extract and mix well.
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt, add to wet mixture little by little until well incorporated.
Roll and cut cookies into desired shapes, dusting with flour as necessary.
Bake cookies at 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes until tops are appear dry rather than shiny.
Do not brown.
For the icing I use ready to mix icing. But you can make your own too.
