1.5 cups salted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1.5 tsps. baking powder
2 tsps. vanilla extract
3.5 cups unbleached all purpose flour
Step 1: Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter (softened) and granulated sugar in your mixer using the paddle attachment.
Step 2: Slowly add in remaining ingredients, scraping the side of the mixer bowl occasionally.
Step 3: Line your baking sheet with parchment paper, place cookies with a little space (they will puff up a bit while baking). Bake for 8-10 minutes (edges should turn very light brown/golden). Top with your favorite candy, sprinkles or frosting.
