10 minutes per batch
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
Place butter and sugar in a separate large mixing bowl; beat on low with an electric stand mixer until blended. Add egg and milk; beat until blended.
Gradually add flour mixture, with mixer on low speed until combined. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until chilled thoroughly.Rolling and Baking instructions:
Heat oven to 375°F. Grease cookie sheets or coat with non-stick spray.
Sprinkle flour over a clean work surface and over a rolling pin. Roll out 1 packet of chilled dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Check frequently to be sure dough is not sticking; add more flour if necessary.
Cut dough into desired shapes and transfer to cookie sheets, placed at least 1-inch apart. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies just begin to brown. Rotate cookie sheets halfway through baking to ensure even browning. Remove second dough packet from refrigerator and repeat process; leftover dough can be rolled and cut again.
Leave cookies on baking sheets 2 minutes; then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate as desired.
