No Chill Cut Out Cookies

No Chill Cut out cookie recipe:

1 Cup butter, softened, 2 sticks
1 Cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3 Cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder


Preheat oven to 400°. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and the VANILLA, mix until well blended. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder then gradually add to the butter mixture and blend well. Form the dough into a smooth ball. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Cut out with cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Fill each cookie sheet with cookies of equal size to ensure even baking. Bake for 6 minutes (a bit longer for thicker cookies), but they shouldn’t brown at all. Remove from cookie sheets and cool on wire racks or waxed paper. Decorate as desired when cool.
