So glad I have got this from Janis. This is her family recipe and it is so simple and yet so amazingly good! Thanks so much for sharing your family recipe which has now become a must bake during Christmas holiday.
butter (has to be salted)
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.
