Total Time 1hour
Servings 2dozen, approximately
3 Tbsp.unsalted buttersoftened
4½ - 5cupsall-purpose flourplus some extra, if needed
2heaping Tbsp.baking powder
Using an electric hand or stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar, until blended.
Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, salt, and milk. Mix until blended.
Add flour, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition until a dough forms. At this point, gently work dough with your hands on a lightly floured surface. If the dough is too sticky, you might need to add a little more flour.
Pinch off about a walnut-size piece of dough and roll it into a 6 inch rope. Shape into a circle (doughnut-shape) with lightly floured hands by pressing rope ends together. Continue this process until all dough is used.
Place cookies on 2 lightly greased baking sheets, but bake one tray at a time.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Place baking sheet on bottom rack in the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
