1 cup soft butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg
3 t vanilla
3 cups flour
½ t baking powder


Mix the first 3 ingredients thoroughly. Stir in vanilla. Sift flour and baking powder and mix into creamy mixture. Chill dough for firmness. Roll chilled dough on a floured surface, very thin (⅛ inch). Cut into desired shapes. Bake at 425 degrees until delicately brown (5-7 min.). Allow to cool.



1 lb box of powdered sugar
1 stick of soft butter
1 t vanilla
Dash of salt
Pet milk (start with ⅔ cup and work your way up)


Mix thoroughly with pet milk until it is the correct consistency. Icing may be tinted with food coloring. After icing cookies allow them to sit until icing dries before wrapping or sealing in a container.
