Butter Cookies


* 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
* 1 cup unsalted butter
* 1 cup confectioner's sugar
* 2 tsp. vanilla extract


1. In food processor, put flour and butter and process until mixture looks crumbly.
2. Add sugar and vanilla, then process until you get a dough consistency.
3. Remove from food processor carefully, then put dough on floured surface and knead slightly into a 2 inch thick tube about 12 inches long. Wrap in plastic food wrap and put in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a couple cookie sheets.
5. Unwrap the cookie dough and slice thin discs of cookie dough, about 1/4 inch thick. Put them on cookie sheets leaving an inch or more between each cookie.
6. Bake on a center rack in the oven for 8 to 11 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 3 or 4 minutes, then slide onto rack to cool. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar when on rack if desired.


This butter cookie is a favorite of ours because they're so simple, you can make them ahead of time (even stick the dough in the freezer) and they are sooooooooooo buttery!

Be sure you use confectioner's (powdered) sugar and not granulated. Granulated sugar won't melt like it should in the dough.
