DirectionsPreheat oven to 180C
Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowlCream butter, sugar and vanilla in a separate bowlAdd one egg to butter mixture and mix until completely combined, then add other egg and repeat, lastly add milk and mix well.Add butter mixture to the flour and mix until it starts to come together then using hands, mix dough into a ballCut dough into 3 parts and roll each part out flat, between 2 sheets of baking paper. Layer all 3 sheets into a baking dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
I found this a little hard because my baking paper was so slippery and it was hard to roll, next time I might try cling wrap instead.Remove sheets from fridge and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
TIP: Spray cookie cutters with cooking spray or grease the edges (not too much). This makes it easier to pop the dough out from the cookie cutter.Bake for 8 minutes or until golden.
Roll out remaining dough and repeat until finished.I got a whole lot of cookies out of this recipe. The star shaped cookie cutter I used was about 3 inches, so all together I was able to make about 30 cookies.
I love this recipe, not bad for my first attempt and I think it will get easier the more I make it but Im very grateful to the lady who posted the original recipe.
