How to Make Butter Cookies


  • 1Cream butter and sugar then add egg and vanilla, cream again.
  • 2Add baking powder to flour, add flour mixture to creamed mixture 1 cup at a time,
  • 3Form dough into a ball wrap in plastic wrap. Chill at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • 4Roll out dough and cut with cookie cutters.

    Bake 425* 5 to 7 minutes
    About 1 tbsp of soft butter
    About 2 cups of confectionary sugar
    ( mix this a little before you but the milk in )
    With the milk , put a little in at a time until you get the right consistency that you are looking for. Make sure it’s a little bit at a time, because the confectionary sugar really soaks it up fast. Obviously, if you put to much milk it, just add more confectionary sugar. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

    Just to let you know, this amount doesn’t make much frosting. Depending on what your frosting , you probably will have to double or triple these amounts.
