Cream butter, sugar and eggs in a very large bowl. Add milk and vanilla. Mix well. Then add dry ingredients. Mix till combined.
Depending on the temperature of your kitchen this may need to be chilled a little. I usually take some dough out then store the rest in the fridge till I'm ready to roll out more.
Roll out to desired thickness (the thicker the cookie the softer it will be). Be sure to flour the rolling pin and board well (I use powdered sugar instead of flour) Dip your cutters in flour before cutting the dough. Cut into desired shapes.
Bake in a 375°F oven for 6-8 minutes, till very lightly browned around the edges. Let cool on cookie racks, then frost and decorate.
