Preheat oven to 170C (Conventional oven), Line 2 baking trays with baking paper
In a mixing bowl with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until creamy
Then add the egg, vanilla and mix further
Lower the speed and incorporate the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well until well combined
Once mixed, you will end up with a crumbly dough. Dust a flat work surface with flour and roll the dough to a ball then roll it to a log shape, cut into 2 pieces. Using one piece flatten it to 1 mm thickness using a rolling pin.
Using cookie cutters, cut your desired shapes and place them on the lined baking trays, leaving small gaps in between them The number of cookies you end up with will be determined by the size of the cookie cutterOnce the dough is cut, you can roll up the off cuts and re flatten it to make more cookies Bake in the oven for 6-10 minutes, turning them halfway through Timing will depend on each oven and the thickness of the cookies Once cooked, take it out of the oven and let them cool down on a wire rack completely.It will be soft when taking off the oven, but once cooled down it will harden up.
