I love my Gram’s Christmas cookie recipe and thought you all would too! Think of it as an early Christmas present from me to you. Read on for the recipe.
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 sifters flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tbs milk
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until well blended and light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the egg to the butter and sugar and beat until well combined. Then add in milk and vanilla.
Blend in the dry ingredients gradually and mix until dough comes together. Chill until hardened.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove dough from refrigerator and divide into thirds. On a floured surface, roll out dough one third at a time to 1/8″ thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 for 5-8 minutes until delicate golden brown. Remove from sheet and cool completely.
