Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat well.

This was originally a Southern Living recipe that Becky Birkla Albritton used for her piano recitals. I have modified it to my taste. It is the favorite cookie of my daughter, Melanie Joy, and a Christmas staple at our home. Makes a great gift!
