Deliciously Buttery Butter Cookies


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Sheets:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Cream Butter and Sugar:

In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat the softened butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add Egg and Vanilla:

Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.
Add Dry Ingredients:

Gradually mix in the dry ingredients just until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
Form Cookies:

You can either roll the dough and cut into shapes with cookie cutters or form small balls and flatten them slightly for a simple round cookie.
Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the edges are just starting to turn golden.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Optional Decorations:

Once cooled, these cookies can be left plain or decorated with icing, chocolate, or sprinkles as desired.
These butter cookies are perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a holiday, a party, or just a cozy afternoon tea. Their delightful buttery taste and melt-in-your-mouth texture make them a favorite among cookie lovers!
