  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • Slowly add the dry ingredients from step #1 to the butter/sugar mixture, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl.
  • Place rounded dough pieces on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper

  • Bake for about 7 minutes or just before they turn too golden. Watch carefully because sugar cookies cook very quickly!
