  2. In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter with the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  4. Stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon.
  5. For each cookie, spoon 30 ml (2 tablespoons) of dough and roll into small balls with your hands, without working the dough too much.
  6. Place 10 balls on both the baking sheet and flatten into 1-cm (1/2-inch) thick cookies with you fingers.
  7. With a floured slotted spatula (see note), gently press the cookie dough down to ½-cm (1/4-inch) thick.
  8. Bake for 16 minutes or until the cookies begin to brown. Cool on the baking sheet.
  9. Repeat with the remaining dough, using various kitchen tools for varying looks.


The peculiarity of these cookies is that they are jazzed up with kitchen tool imprints (spatulas, potato masher, meat tenderizer, and so on).
