Sugar Cookies

Makes: 4 dozen

1 c. butter (2 sticks), softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
3 c. flour,
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
Small dish with 3-4 T. flour

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir into sugar mixture. Place in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and make into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Take a flat bottomed glass, dip it in the dish of sugar and press the cookie balls flat. Top with colored sugar crystals or sprinkles, if desired. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until just slightly browned.

Tips: The original recipe called for the cookie dough to be rolled out and then cut with cookie cutters. While this produces very cute cookies, no matter how much flour I used on the counter and the rolling pin I could not get the dough to stop sticking. So I adapted the recipe and it worked just fine ... without all the frustration. I also shared this recipe at A Southern Fairytale's Mouthwatering Mondays.
