BUTTER-COOKIES - Simple butter cookies

     After reading the ingredients on a can of imported Danish
     butter cookies, I thought: "Hey! I can do this myself!", so
     I developed the following recipe. It doesn't resemble the
     original too much, but considering that the cookies don't
     stay around for more than two days, and that even my mother
     liked them, they must be good!

INGREDIENTS (Makes 2-3 dozen cookies))
     1/2 cup   unsalted butter, at room temperature
     1/2 cup   granulated sugar
     1 1/2 cup white flour
     1         large egg
     1 tsp     vanilla extract
     1 1/2 tsp baking powder

          (1)  Beat the butter with the sugar.

          (2)  Add the egg and vanilla and beat until you get a
               uniform mixture.

          (3)  Mix the flour and baking powder and gradually
               blend them into the mixture.  When you're done,
               you should have a rather sticky dough.

          (4)  Shape the dough into balls, about 1 inch in diame-
               ter. Roll them in sugar and place them on an
               ungreased cookie sheet, leaving about an inch of
               space between cookies, so that they don't stick
               together when they expand.

          (5)  Bake in preheated oven at 350 deg. F for 20

          (6)  Remove from oven, let them cool for a while, and
               start eating right away.

     Difficulty: Easy.  Time: 20 minutes preparation, 20 minutes
     baking.  Precision: measure the ingredients.
