How to Make COOKIES FOR A CAUSE
- 1In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs and vanilla; beat 1 to 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
Gradually add flour and beat 2 minutes, or until well blended.
Form dough into 2 balls; cover and chill at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin, roll 1 ball of dough to 1/4-inch thickness.
Using a ribbon cookie cutter, cut shapes out of dough.
Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden around the edges.
Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Frost cooled cookies with your favorite frosting and decorate as desired.
