I will say you will not be disappointed. These are delicious and this recipe is one that was handed down.
In case you are wondering, before you bake the cookies you must say the words zeeba zabba zero, three times over the cookies. This makes them into zero calorie treats,
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup butter (you may use cannabutter with regular here if you so desire)
1 cup sugar
1 large egg beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
Sift flour and baking soda into a separate bowl
Cream butter, and gradually add sugar, egg, and vanilla
Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour mix, then when mixed add the additional until dough looks right ( I have always used the whole 3 cups)
Place dough on saran wrap, cover tight, and chill for 2 hours.
Roll out to 1/2" thick, and cut out shapes with cookie cutter.
Bake at 375* F, for 8-12 minutes (edges only should be light golden brown
Makes 16, 3" circle cookies
Just in case you also need the frosting, although you did not ask, this is the best royal icing for working with IMO
2 large eggs, whites only
2 tsp. lemon juice
3 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar sifted
You may need to add anywhere from a few tblsp. warm water to as much as needed to get the consistancy you want. You should be able to pull a knife blade across the surface in the bowl, and have the line disappear in 15 seconds. Add your coloring and pipe, flood, or knife smear as you desire. The icing will harden within a few hours.......
Enjoy immediately, or place cookies in an airtight container if you plan on saving them for slower consumption.
I thought about just PM ing this to you Mr G, but decided I should share it with all......
