Directions

Serving Size: 36 cookies

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Mix well.
  • Cream butter and sugar together in large bowl, on medium speed of electric mixer until light and fluffy in texture. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture. Mix well. Form dough into three balls. Wrap each in plastic wrap and chill about 2 hours for easy handling.
  • Roll dough out, one ball at a time, on a floured surface to 1/4" (0.4cm) thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutters. Place on baking sheets. Sprinkle on coloured sugar before baking or leave plain and decorate later.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until light golden. Baking time will depend on shape of cookies. Cool on sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack. Decorate with icing and candies when completely cooled.
