Cookie Recipe ( The Flour Pot)

Made these first decorated cookies.  Recipe was from the Flour Pot Cookie Book.  Very nice and stable cookie. Does not spread out.


3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
1 large egg. room temp
1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, sift flour together with baking powder and set aside.  In an electric mixing bowl using paddle attachment cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This should take about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat another minute or so.
  • Add flour mixture in two batches. Blend until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Take the dough out of the mixer and place it on a piece of parchment paper.  Using your hands knead the dough for a minute.  Place the dough in a plastic bag and refrigerate for at least an hour.  This will make the dough easier to handle when you began to roll it out.  However if you must, you can roll the cookies immediately without refrigeration.
  • I rolled the cookies in a parchement paper so there is no need for added flour.  Roll the dough with a rolling pin until it is about 1/8 inch thick.  When they bake, these cookies will not really spread, so you can cut the dough out and place them pretty close to each other on a baking tray.
  • If you are creating cookie on a stick this is the time to place the lollipop sticks in your cookies.
  • Bake for 8 minutes or until the cookies begin to take on a golden color.  They will continue to cook when removed from the oven, so dont let them get too brown before taking them out.
  • These cookies also freeze very well.
