Butter and Milk cookies

This is the first time I try to make cookies. Chinese new year is coming and I am sure a lot of people are quite busy making cookies and cakes. I make this cookies just for fun. The cookies came out crispy but very sweet. Maybe next time, can reduce sugar to 1/2 cup.

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
     1/4 tsp of baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup white sugar
    1 cup butter
    1 egg
    3 tablespoons milk powder   
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

   1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the egg, cream and vanilla extract. Blend thoroughly (this usually works best with your hands).
    2.Form dough into a flattened ball, wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. This mixture can keep for several days.
    3.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
    4. Roll dough out on a floured board to about 1/4 to 1/8 inch thick. Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter and decorate with different types of sprinkles.
    5. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 to 8 minutes.
