Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 5 cups Flour

1. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together until smooth.
2. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
3. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.

I’ve tried many and not been really happy with the outcome….they don’t hold their shape well at all.
I’m going to try these, I really want to have a pretty cookie to paint.
Thanks for sharing
