Ingredients
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 ts nutmeg (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract.
  2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Chill 1 – 2 hours so it will be easy to handle.
  3. Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 7 to 8 minutes at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to racks immediately to cool.
