Crunchy Sugar Cookies

This recipe is from a dear aunt who is now almost 95 and had 15 children! They are so light and crunch that you'll want to make them all the time! I've tried using flavored sugar instead of plain for the dusting and honestly, the original cookie is so delicious that it really doesn't need any enhancements.
