 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           butter or margarine -- softened
    1      cup           sugar
    2                    eggs
    2      Tablespoons   milk
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    2 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
    2      teaspoons     baking powder
                         decorator’s sugar -- optional
 
 In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a
 time, beating well after each addition. Add milk and        
 vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. Combine flour and     
 baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix     
 well. Chill at least 2 hours or overnight. On a lightly     
 floured surface, roll the dough to 1/4 thickness. Cut with 
 trefoil cookie cutter or cutter of your choice. Place       
 cookies on ungreased baking pans. Sprinkle with sugar if    
 desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly 
 browned. Cool on wire racks.
