    aloha808's Note:

    I thought I got this recipe here at the Zaar but when I just looked for it, to print a new copy, I don't see it! This is the easiest cut-out, all butter Sugar Cookie recipe I have ever made. No chilling the dough and it rolls perfectly every time between two sheets of parchment or waxed paper, dusted with just a little bit of flour! These cookies are crispy when rolled thin and stand up nicely even here in Honolulu!

    4. 4
      Add Egg and Vanilla Extract and beat well.
    5. 5
