Butter Cookies

These butter cookies are shaped and topped with almond halves before baking.
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted or stirred before measuring
  • dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • blanched almond halves



Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir dry ingredients into butter mixture; mixing until well blended. Shape dough into small balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets; press an almond half into the top of each ball. Bake butter cookies at 300° for 20 minutes, or until just lightly browned. Makes 5 to 6 dozen butter cookies.

Shape them as you wish 😉
