 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Flour
      1/4   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Baking powder
      1/2   c            Powdered sugar
    1       c            Butter
 
      Oven 325~.
   
      Mix butter and sugar until creamy.  Add sifted dry
   ingredients. Chill until easy to handle.  Roll out to
   1/4 thickness on lightly-floured board or wax paper.
   Cut into desired shapes (I have a bird cutter and
   Christmas tree).  Bake on ungreased sheet at 325~ for
   10 to 15 minutes. Cookies may be sprinkled with
   colored sugars before baking, if desired.
