Equipment

  • An electric hand or stand mixer

Ingredients
  

  • 3 tbsp butter (softened)
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • cups flour (more may be needed)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp baking powder (heaping tablespoons!)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup warm milk

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 a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Place baking sheet on bottom rack in the oven. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Store in an air-tight container.
