Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Gather all the ingredients. If you want to make the dove shaped cookies, print out the image (see Notes) and trace the pattern on parchment paper.
Sift the flour.
Fit an electric mixer with the whisk attachment and combine sugar and butter in the bowl. Whisk on high speed until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the beaten egg and mix to combine. Add the vanilla extract if you're using.
Change the whisk to the beater attachment. Add the flour and baking powder and mix on low speed until flour is incorporated.
Roll the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC). Roll out the dough on lightly floured surface, to ¼ inch thickness. Tip: I put the long cooking chopsticks (it’s about ¼ inch thickness) on both sides of the dough and roll the dough to keep the same thickness.
Cut out the dough around the dove shape, or cut with 2-inch cookie cutters (or use a tall glass).
Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, about 1 inch apart.
Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on wire rack. Store the cookies in an airtight container. Enjoy!
