This is an old standby recipe that I make for any occasion. They are so good and easy to make, You can change the recipe to Lemon butter cookies or Key Lime butter cookies, simply by deleting the vanilla and adding lemon or key lime juice instead, or be creative and come up with something entirely different. Such a versatile recipe,and I love the flavor...Enjoy!
