1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups flour

1. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

3. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well blended.
 
4. Chill for two hours.
 
5. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
 
6. Divide dough into quarters. Roll 1/4 on lightly floured surface until 1/8" thick.
 
7. Dip cookie cutters in flour and press out cookies from the dough.
 
8. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes until barely browned at edges.
 
9. Allow cookies to cool.
