1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:
Thoroughly mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour, baking flour and salt. Cover and chill at least 45 minutes. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Roll dough about 1/8 inch thick on lightly-floured pastry cloth. Cut into desired shapes. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges begin to be very light golden. Makes about 3 – 4 dozen cookies depending on the size of the cutter.

To frost: Combine sugar, butter and 1 1/2 tbsp. milk. Beat ingredients until mixture is smooth enough to spread or pipe on cookies. Add up to 1 tbsp. more milk, if necessary. For colored icing, divide icing into several portions and stir a few drops of food coloring into each. Use a butter knife to spread icing on cooled cookies. Makes about 1 cup of icing.

Personal Notes:
This is the recipe I have always used and is a favorite cookie of my children and grandchildren. I decorate them with frosting and sprinkles appropriate for the occasion. Once Sarah frosted the same cookie for 20 minutes....couldn't decide which color frosting she liked the best! Sugar rush!
