These crisp, melt-in-your-mouth Real Butter Cookies are like the ones Mama used to make. They're perfect for baking into your favorite shapes and serving them at birthday parties or holiday get-togethers!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt. Gradually add flour; beat until well mixed. Refrigerate dough 1 hour.
     
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  3. Separate dough into 4 pieces, then roll out each section on a lightly-floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut or mold dough into desired shapes. Place shapes on ungreased baking sheets.
     
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until light brown.

     

Notes

The size of the cookie cutters you use will determine the yield and therefore it may vary a little. Also, it's best not to substitute margarine for butter in this recipe.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I tried the recipe, I used exactly what the recipe called for & they did not turn out good at all. The problem is that it calls for too much flour & you cannot taste the butter, it bakes up more like biscuits. Look for a better recipe.
