1 1/2 cups softened butter

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

Prep Time: 20 min Cook Time: 6-8 min

  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight). Dough will be too sticky to roll if you do not chill.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Line sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy clean up.

  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
