An Old Family Recipe
(Which is odd, because we're not a very old family)

Cookie Cutter Cookies

½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour

Cream the butter and sugar. Blend in the egg and vanilla. Sift the dry ingredients together and stir into butter-sugar-egg mixture with a wooden spoon.

Chill dough.

Using about ⅓ of the dough at a time, roll on a lightly floured surface ⅛ inch thick (can be thinner if using plain cookie cutters). Flour solid cookie cutters before using. Re-chill scraps.

Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet in (preheated) 400 degree oven for 8 - 10 minutes.
