3 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter

1 egg, lightly beaten
3 Tbsp cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400 F. Over a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter and blend with a pastry blender until mixture resembles cornmeal. Stir in lightly beaten egg, cream, and vanilla. Blend well. Dough may be chilled if desired. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Sprinkle with sugar, and cut into desired shapes.

Transfer to ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until delicately brown.
