These cookies melt in your mouth! I usually make them for Christmas, we use different cookie cutters and then frost them but I always have to make triple batches because the kid's eat more then they frost. :-)

  3. Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl then stir into the creamed mixture.
  4. Divide dough into two pieces,cover and chill until firm,about 1 hour.
