    Cinnamom in Illinois's Note:

    This recipe is passed down to all of the girls in our family, I think maybe in the womb??? We have adjusted it over the years to reflect current measures and methods for baking. It is a very delicate dough, so is perfectly suited to making in a cool kitchen. This is the kind of cookie you like to have with a nice strong cuppa when you finally get a moment to yourself. My Mom used to hide a little cache of these in the freezer just for those few and far between moments.

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Lightly rub a stick of butter over a large cookie sheet.
    3. 3
      Cream butter, sugar, vanilla and salt together.
    4. 4
      Making sure flour is sifted, add the first 2 cups slowly. Another 1/4 cup may be added if the weather is damp or the dough seems extremely soft. This is supposed to be a very soft dough, so use extra flour sparingly.
    5. 5
      Using a heaping teaspoonful, form into a ball. Take care not to roll them too much in your hands, so the dough doesn't become "tough".
    6. 6
      Place cookies about two inches apart on the sheet. Flatten slightly with a glass dipped in powdered sugar.
    7. 7
      Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or just until the edges begin to brown.
    8. 8
      Yield depends on how "heaping" your teaspoons are!
