Course Dessert
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 2 dozen, approximately

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 4½ - 5 cups all-purpose flour plus some extra, if needed
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup milk warm

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Store in an air-tight container.
