Aunt May's Butter Cookies


Cream 1 lb. butter (very soft)
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Sift 5 cups of flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Add flour to creamed mixture a little at a time. Use a cookie press and press onto a cookie sheet. Top with sprinkles.

These are also known as Grandma Claire's cookies. She made them famous for us. We have learned that  you should use a good butter for this recipe. Sometimes some of the store brands have ruined the recipe.
