2 large cookie sheets
1/2cupunsalted butter 1 stick
1large egg room temperature
sanding sugar or coarse sugar or other edible decorations
Place two cookie sheets in fridge to completely chill.
Arrange oven racks at top and bottom of oven, then set to preheat at 350-degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, honey, and vanilla. Gradually add in the dry mixture until just combined. Dough will be super-soft.
Cookie presses vary in how they work--fill the device with dough, however required, and add decorative disk or nozzle. Press out cookie dough directly onto the cold cookie sheets, spacing 1-inch apart.
If desired, add colorful sanding sugar or other decorations. Bake for 7 minutes. Switch placement of cookie sheets within oven. Bake for another 7 minutes, until set. Let cool on pans for about 5 minutes then transfer to racks to completely cool.
