Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture in 3 additions.

Divide dough in half; shape each into disc. Wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or for up to 24 hours.

Between waxed paper, roll out dough, 1 disc at a time, to œ-inch (5 mm) thickness; cut out desired shapes. With spatula, place cookies, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on prepared pans. (Make-ahead: Freeze until firm. Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven until bottoms and edges are light golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute on pans on racks. Transfer to racks and let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.) Makes about thirty-six 3-inch (8 cm) cookies.
