Ingredients

  • 1

    and 1/3 cups of butter

  • 1

    and 1/2 cups of sugar

  • Cream (mix) the butter and sugar together. It helps if the butter has been left out a little while so it's a little softer, but don't melt it.

  • 2

    eggs

  • 2

    tsp. vanilla extract

  • 3

    and 1/2 cups of flour

  • 2

    tsp. baking powder

  • 1

    tsp. of salt (I do 1/2 tsp though)

  • Mix till it sticks. Then refrigerate the dough for at least an hour. This is actually very important. It matters. Roll out your dough, cut into cookies, and bake.

  • Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes

  • till the edges are just barely light brown. If you over cook them you'll get crunchy cookies.

  • I make them pretty thin because that's my favorite. If you prefer them thicker you might need to add a little more time in the oven.

Directions

Now for the frosting. This one's kind of hard to write down because I just do it. This is a small batch of frosting. If I know I want to have plenty for the recipe above I recommend doubling it. 1 stick of butter (softened - that's a must) 1 tsp. vanilla extract 2-3.5 cups of powdered sugar (depending on how thick you want your frosting) a pinch of salt (optional) either 2 Tbsp. of milk OR one egg
