  • Combine in a separate bowl, the flour, salt, baking powder and whisk to get any lumps out.
  • Add dry ingredients slowly to butter and sugar mixture.Blend well.
  • Chill one hour or longer (I usually do one hour. You can freeze the dough as well to use at a later time)
  • Roll out onto floured board, the thicker the dough the softer the cookie.
