Christmas Cookies


  1. Using a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Mixing on low speed, add the flour to the butter mixture, 1 ½ cups at a time, mixing until completely combined.             
  4. Flatten the dough into a disc shape, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Roll the dough about ½-inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.   
  6. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 12 minutes. Let cool completely. Decorate with your favorite icing, if desired.
