Total Time : 1 hour
Serves : 6-7 dozen


  • 1 1/2 cups Essential Everyday Butter softened
  • 1 cup Essential Everyday Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Essential Everyday Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 1/2 cups Essential Everyday All-purpose Flour

In large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla; using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat until light and fluffy.

Reduce mixer to low; add flour and salt, mixing until well combined, scraping bowl often.

Divide dough into fourths; work with one-fourth at a time keeping remaining dough refrigerated. Roll dough ⅛-inch thick on lightly floured work surface, cut with favorite cookie cutters.

Place cutouts onto ungreased baking sheet; sprinkle with colored sugar, if desired. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven 6-8 minutes or until set but not browned.

Tip: Dough may be refrigerated, covered, up to 7 days.
