Step 2: Make the cookie dough and chill it.
You will need:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cream or milk
2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Cream the butter and sugar until soft (an electric mixer makes this easy, or use
a spoon and stir the ingredients by hand until smooth).
- Mix in the egg, vanilla extract, and cream or milk.
- Add 1-1/2 cups of flour (you will use the other 1/2 cup later), baking powder and
salt and mix thoroughly.
- Roll the dough into a ball. Then cover it and chill in the refrigerator for at
least one hour.
