Add All Ingredients

2½ cups Big Y all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. Big Y salt

¾ cup Big Y unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, softened

¾ cup Big Y dark brown sugar, packed

1 Big Y large white egg, lightly beaten

1 Tbsp. Big Y pure vanilla extract


In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed cream together butter and sugar for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix on medium-low speed until completely incorporated. Divide dough in half, pat into 2 discs about ¼-inch thick, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Remove dough from refrigerator and let sit for 10 minutes. Roll out 1 disc of dough at a time between 2 pieces of parchment paper until ¼-inch thick. Cut out gingerbread shapes with cookie cutters and arrange about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown on the bottom. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets until firm enough to transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely. Repeat process with remaining dough. Turn cookies upside down and decorate like reindeer.
