"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

2/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour

1. Preheat oven to 375. In large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.
Add sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg, milk and
vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any
remaining flour. Divide dough in half. If necessary, wrap each half in plastic wrap; chill dough about 30 minutes or
until easy to handle.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll half the dough at a time until 1/8 inch thick. To roll, start from the center and push
dough out toward the edges until it is a uniform thickness. Using a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter, cut out shapes. Place
shapes 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 7 - 8 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are very light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. If
desired, frost with powdered sugar icing

Makes about 36 cookies.
