From the kitchen of Lisa Knewasser

In a large bowl, cream:

1 c butter

1 c sugar

Beat in:

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla


2 tsp baking powder

Add, 1 cup at a time:

3 c flour

The dough will be very stiff.

Divide dough into 2 balls.

On a floured surface, roll dough.

Cut out shapes & use a spatula to lift cookies onto sheets.

Bake @ 400 on middle rack for 6-7 minutes, or until lightly browned.


  • Unlike most rolled sugar cookies, this dough does NOT require chilling. Dough can be tinted with food coloring. For chocolate cookies, stir in 3 ounces melted, unsweetened chocolate. If dough becomes to stiff add water, 1 tsp at a time.
