  1. Cream the butter, add sugar, egg well beaten, milk, and extract.

  2. Mix and sift dry ingredients and add to first mixture.

  3. Toss one-fourth of mixture on a floured board and roll as thinly as possible; shape with a small round cutter, first dipped in flour.

  4. Place near together on a buttered sheet and bake in a moderate oven.

  5. Gather up the trimmings and roll with another portion of dough.

  6. During rolling, the bowl containing mixture should be kept in a cool place, or it will be necessary to add more flour to dough, which makes cookies hard rather than crisp and short.
