All I've done is omit the baking powder to my recipe.  Works for me.  Curious to see if there is one that is different.

6 cups flour

  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sugar (white granulated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract or desired flavoring (I like almond myself)
  • 1 tsp. salt


1.    Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together.

2.    Chill for 1 to 2 hours (or see Hint below)

3.    Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shapes. Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees F (176 C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges. This recipe can make up to 5-dozen 3″ cookies.
