My Mom makes butter cookies from my grandmother’s recipe every Christmas. Usually she leaves some plain, on some she puts a pecan halve and then she decorates some with the colored sugars and such. They are ALL good!!!

Try the following one. You will get that feeling.


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

1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least one hour. Chill cookie sheets.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Press dough out onto ungreased, chilled cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden at the edges. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
