    1c & 4tbsp butter, softened at room temp
      1 c granulated sugar
        1 egg
          1 egg yolk
            2 tsp vanilla extract
              3 c all purpose flour
                1 ½ tsp baking powder
                  ½ tsp fine salt
                    • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
                    • Beat the butter & sugar and light and fluffy using a hand mixer.
                    • Add in the egg, egg yolk & vanilla. Beat until well combined.
                    • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder & salt.
                    • Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and gently mix on low speed. Once the flour is about absorbed, add the remainder of the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Do not over mix and be sure to thoroughly scrape the sides and bottom of your bowl every so often while mixing.
                    • Roll to a 1/4 inch thickness.
                    • Cut using your desired cookie cutters. Use an offset spatula to lift the cookies off the surface and place the cookies on the prepared tray. If you are decorating with sprinkles, this is when you would sprinkle your cookies.
                    • Bake for 11-13 minutes. These cookies are done when they are barely golden brown on the edges.
                    • Allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes and transfer to a baking rack to finish cooling.
                    • Decorate as desired.
