1 cup of softened butter or margarine
1/2 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of AP flour
sprinkles, nonpareils or sugar
Just blend it all together, adding the flour last. Then form logs of the dough. Roll logs in sprinkles, nonpareils or sugar. This isn’t just for decoration because you need the sweetness. Wrap logs in wax paper or parchment and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Then heat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the cookies (if the diameter is 2 inches then slice 1/8 of an inch, if thinner then cut thicker) and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until they turn golden (the bottom will turn light brown). Cool completely on a wire rack!
That is it! How much easier can it get?
