  1. . Position the rack in the center of the oven. Pre-heat the oven to 350F/180C/Gas4. Parchment line 2 large baking pans.
  2. . In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. . In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla together until very fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add in the egg and beat for about 1 more minute.
  4. . On LOW-MEDIUM speed, gradually add in the flour mix. Do not over mix because the dough will toughen. Scrape out the dough into a medium, deep bowl. Note - if making cut-out cookies: plastic wrap the dough into a disc and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  5. . For DROP cookies: With the aid of a mini ice-cream scoop (#60), pack in the dough and level off each portion before releasing. Place 14 cookies per prepared baking sheet. Gently roll each one before lightly flattening them with the tine of a fork. Sprinkle each cookie with colored sugar or candy. BAKE them for 14 minutes. Leave them to cool on the pan and then transfer to a metal rack. Repeat with the next pan.
  6. Storing: Cookies will generally keep in an airtight tin for about 2 weeks or 2 months in the freezer.
  7. . Flavourful baking wishes from Claudia's
