  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. clear or regular vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl (I use my kitchen aid mixer) mix together sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Mix egg until well combined to the egg mixture.
  • Next add in vanilla until combined.
  • Then add in sifted flour and baking powder.
  • Stir mixture until everything is incorporated using a spatula, mixture or hands.
  • Create a ball and roll out onto a round baking pan/stone.
  • Using a rolling pin roll out a disc leaving a 1/2" edge for the cookie dough to expand.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes ensuring not to over bake. Once the edge has set, remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Decorate and have fun!
