Betty Benson's Sugar Cookies
This is the recipe from my friend's mother-in-law and I don't know what they are called as I have the title as "Betty Benson's Sugar Cookies". This will be our 16th year making them (we've tried a few other recipes, but always come back to this one.)
You can freeze the dough if it will be more than 3 days before you bake them.
We use cookie cutters, but if the dough gets too warm it will
stick, so we only work with a little dough at a time and keep the rest
in the fridge.
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beat well
(very important). Add vanilla. Gradually add dry ingredients. Chill at
least 24 hours--the longer the better. Bake at 375 for 6 to 8 minutes
may need longer depending on how thick you roll them out.
