Butter Cut Outs

Butter Cut Outs: This recipe comes from my friend, Theresa. They are the best cut out cookies ever!

1 c. butter
1 egg
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. sugar
2-1/2 c. flour

Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Add dry ingredients gradually and mix well. Add vanilla last. Wrap in plastic and chill for 2 hours or until easy to handle. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.

1/2 c. butter, softened
3-4 c. powdered sugar
3 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat butter and powdered sugar. Add vanilla and then milk as needed. Tint desired colors and frost. You most likely will not use all of the frosting.
