  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 4 teaspoons milk
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Beat room-temperature butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in the milk until incorporated.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients and blend into the mixture in batches.
  • Divide the dough in half and wrap in cling wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out one half of the dough to 1/4-1/8 inch. Cut with cookie cutters and transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Decorate with egg wash painting and sprinkles. Repeat with the other half of the dough.
