How to Make It

Step 1

With an electric mixer, beat 2 cups sugar and butter until soft and creamy. Beat in milk, eggs and vanilla.

Step 2

In a separate large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture in thirds, mixing well after each addition.

Step 3

Divide dough into fourths, wrap each piece in plastic and chill, at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Mix remaining 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon; cover and set aside.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Working with one fourth at a time on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Use a 4-inch, 5-point star-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Place stars 2 inches apart on cookie sheet; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake until cookies spring back slightly when pressed in center, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on pans on wire racks for 5 minutes; remove cookies to racks to cool completely.
