This year's cutout cookie is decorated with a big "C" that does double-duty; it's both our family monogram and stands for "Christmas."
- Cream butter and sugar well.
- Add vanilla and flour to make a pliable dough.
- Roll out thin (1/8") and cut with a small round cutter, 1 1/2" in diameter.
- Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees F until very lightly browned on the bottom -- about 8 - 10 minutes.
Cool and frost with Royal Icing (optional).See more recipes from Anne Coleman (aka Short Order Mom).
