1 cup soft butter (real butter not margarine)
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
Mix the butter and sugar thoroughly. Stir in the flour. Mix with the hands. Chill this dough for up to an hour. It will be easier to handle.
Roll out on a floured board, about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into small shapes using a cookie cutter and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in a preheated oven, 300 deg, for about 25 minutes, or until done. The cookies should not brown, or lose their shape during baking. Makes about 25-30 cookies.
