Drop Sugar Cookies

1 tbsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground cardamom or nutmeg
1/2 cup Unsalted butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups Sugar
2 Eggs
2 tbsp Milk
2 tsp Vanilla extract
Candy sprinkles (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and cardamom or nutmeg, set aside. In another bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Stir in flour mixture until just blended. Drop dough by level tablespoonfulls on to lightly greased cookie sheets, flattening each just slightly with a fork.
