Gramma Clara's Real Butter Butter Cookies
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1) Cream butter & add sugar slowly. Mix until light and fluffy.
2) Add egg and vanilla, then add sifted dry ingredient. I don't every time and they still turn out delicious.
3) Allow to chill for about an hour. Then roll out to about 1/8" thick and cut with your favorite cookie cutters.
Add sprinkles now if you don't want to frost them later
4) Bake at 350* for 7 minutes (or until set but not browned)
5) Allow to cool and frost.
