Vanilla Butter Meltaways
Serves: 24
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour (more if too sticky)
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • Frosting:
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 lb icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsps milk
  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat. Add flour, salt, baking soda and baking power and mix well. If too sticky, add more flour gradually. Using a spoon, make 1-inch balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Flatten the cookie a tiny bit (not too much - they will spread!) and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Cookies will not appear to be done, but that's exactly how you want them. Let cool on the pan (they continue to cook a bit this way).
  2. For the icing, cream all ingredients together. When the cookies are completely cooled, frost them and add sprinkles or food colouring, if you want.
