  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all purpose flour plus extra for rolling

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 350F. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

  • Add egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.

  • Add flour and baking powder and mix until dough starts to form.

  • Roll out dough with a rolling pin on a floured surface. Roll out to 1/8 inch thickness.

  • Using a star cookie cutter, cut out star shapes, rerolling and cutting scraps.

  • Using a smaller star cookie cutter, cut a smaller star in the center of the larger stars. Do this for half the cookies.

  • Arrange whole and cutout cookies on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets.

  • Bake on top and bottom racks for approximately 8 minutes, until the edges of the cookies start to turn golden.

  • Remove cookies from the oven and let them cool. Dust cutout cookies with powdered sugar if desired.
