Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. First cream the butter, add sugar, egg well beaten, milk, and vanilla.
  2. Mix and sift dry ingredients and add to first mixture.
  3. Toss one-fourth of mixture on a floured board and roll as thinly as possible; shape with a small round cutter, first dipped in flour.
  4. Place near together on a buttered sheet and bake in a moderate oven.
  5. Gather up the trimmings and roll with another portion of dough.
  6. During rolling, the bowl containing mixture should be kept in a cool place, or it will be necessary to add more flour to dough, which makes cookies hard rather than crisp and short.
