Vanilla Cookies Recipe

The Vanilla Variation

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon orange (or almond) extract
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
4 (or 4 1/2 cups) flour

Cream butter and sugar together. 
Add eggs, vanilla, and orange extract. Mix well. 
Add baking powder and salt and mix again.  
Add flour 1 cup at a time. Again, IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE THESE COOKIES RIGHT AWAY, add 4 1/2 cups flour and go for it. No need to chill the dough. If you are not going to use the dough immediately-- stop at 4 cups of flour. 
Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 3/8 inch (0.9cm) thick. Bake at 190 degrees Celsius for 7 minutes. Eat and enjoy. Repeat as necessary.
