Butter/Sugar Cookies


1 cup butter

2/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

2 1/2 cups flour, sifted

1/2 teaspoon salt

Using electric mixer

1. Cream butter and sugar

2. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla

3. Beat in 1 egg

4. Sift and combine  flour and salt

5. Add to butter mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Scrape dough onto saran wrap and use wrap to form into a mass.

6. Chill dough 3 to 4 hours before rolling

I roll out 1/4 of the dough at a time – a pastry cloth lightly floured makes the job much easier

7. Preheat oven to 350
