|1||lb||butter (has to be salted)|
|5||cup||sifted all purpose flour|
Cream butter until almost white. Add sugar a little at a time. Add vanilla beating well. Make it fluffyish with no lumps.
Add flour a little at a time mixing thoroughly with your hands making a rollable cookie dough.
Pre-heat oven to 325F.
Dust table with flour, roll and cut with cookie cutter – thickness is your choice but I do mine aprox. 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 25 minutes. Should stay mostly white, maybe a little light brownish at the edges.
