DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Sift together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs to butter mixture. Combine completely.
  • Add vanilla.
  • Add enough flour mixture to make a soft dough. Shape dough with lightly floured hands into desired shapes* and arrange on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Brush with beaten egg and water.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on racks.
  • *The most common shape I’ve seen is twists. Twists can be made by rolling a piece of dough about 5 inches long and ½ inch round into a tube shape. Bring ends together and lightly twist one time from middle to ends. Other shapes are balls with flattened bottoms.
