Mamaw Ferguson's Cookies

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 unbeaten egg
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 3 cups plain
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/8 t. salt

Let butter get to room temperature. Cream butter and sugar together.  Add unbeaten egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Sift dry ingredient and add to mix.
Divide into thirds refrigerate until firm. Roll out and cut. You can roll into a log, wrap with waxed paper and refrigerate. 

Preheat 350 degrees. Bake until lightly brown. Do not overcook. These are delicate and melt in your mouth.
