HI EVERYONE AND THANKS FOR READING. THIS IS MY FAVOURITE COOKIE RECIPE - IT’S ALWAYS A BIG HIT. WHAT I LOVE MOST IS THAT IT’S SO EASY TO MAKE AND TAKES ALMOST NO TIME AT ALL. THEY’RE LIGHT AND BUTTERY AND DELICIOUS. ENJOY! -ANITA

INGREDIENTS: 1 1/4 cup icing sugar 4 cups white flour 2 tbsp. baking powder (or cornstarch) 2 1/4 cup butter COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: Sift together sugar, flour and baking powder. Cut in butter until dough is the consistency of play dough. (I have to mix it with my hands to get it like that - and yes, I always wash my hands first). Break into small balls and roll out and cut with cookie cutters.

I find you have to add a bit of flour to roll it out or it gets sticky. I leave the cookies fairly thick when cutting them. Bake at 275 for about 18 - 20 minutes. I bake them on parchment paper so they don’t stick to the cookie tray. When you take them out, they will still look pretty raw but if you over bake them they turn brown (yuk), I transfer them to a baking rake and them let them cool and then they harden up. For the icing, I melt chocolate chip wafers and add food colouring and decorate them.
