Decorated Sugar Cookies

This recipe comes from a very old Southern Living cookbook. The great thing about these cookies is that you don’t have to chill the dough before you cut out your shapes.

  • 1⁄2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3⁄4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (256 g) all purpose flour
  • 1⁄2  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2  teaspoon salt

Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well. Combine flour, soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture, blending well. (Dough will be very stiff) Roll out the dough onto a floured surface and cut out cookies with desired shapes. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely before icing.
