Mom's Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies are the best thing since sliced bread. As a kid, I helped Mom make a big batch of these cookies every Christmas. I loved cutting them out with cookie cutters. They are not your typical cakey sugar cookie. These are very thin and crisp. Mmm...

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour

1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until well-blended. Stir in flour.

2. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.

3. Preheat oven to 350.

4. Roll out dough on lightly floured board or pastry cloth to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters.

5. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 min or until light golden brown. Cool and decorate as desired.

Yields about 6 dozen.
Pin It!
