Found this recipe in a magazine, compliments of Gaylea:

1    egg
2   tsp    vanilla
2 1/2 c   flour

1/4 icing sugar ( may be more or less).

Preheat ovn to 350

Using electric beater  combine butter and sugar until light and fluffy
Beat in egg and vanilla

In separate bowl mix flour and baking powder. Using a wooden spoon
gradually stir flour mixture into egg mixture.add candies/fruit at the end.

Using rounded tablespoons full of dough, roll into balls
Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Chill for at least one hour up to one day

Bake in center of oven for 10 minutes, cool for 3 minutes
Sift icing sugar into shallow bowl, roll cookies in icing sugar
