2-1/2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs
2 T milk
1 t vanilla extract

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375.
In a small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder and set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Add well-beaten eggs and mix well. Mix in milk and vanilla. Add flour mixture and beat until it is completely mixed in.
Cover bowl and chill dough in refrigerator for about an hour. Divide dough in half. Liberally flour a rolling surface and put half of dough on it, turning dough over to make sure some flour clings to it lightly. Flour a rolling pin, and using quick, light strokes, roll dough out to 1/8" thick. Cut rounds with a 2' Cookie cutter; place cutouts on an ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle lightly with more sugar, if desired. Gather up dough scraps and quickly re-roll before dough gets warm. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
