I am hoping this is the recipe you are seeking.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 ts vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts baking powder
  • 1/4 ts salt


In large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy; beat egg in well. In small bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt; with mixer at low speed, beat into butter mixture to blend well. Flatten dough to disk shape. Refrigerate wrapped in plastic for 30 minutes.
Work with one-fourth dough at a time; keep remainder refrigerated.
Heat oven to 350~F. Roll dough out to 1/8" or 1/4" thickness on lightly floured surface and cut into desired shapes, or mold in shapes.
Place on ungreased cookie sheets, 1"apart. Bake 8-15 minutes, depending on thickness of dough, until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Store in airtight containers.

Makes 2 1/2 to 5 dozen cookies, depending on size.
