READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 15 dozen




  • Cream sugar, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Then work in flour, mix at slow speed or use a spoon or your hands.
  • Shape into a smooth ball; cover and chill as long as a week. Let dough come to room temperature before rolling.
  • Pinch off a small lump of dough, shape into a ball, then flatten and roll very thin on a well-floured pastry cloth or board.
  • Cut into desired shapes and place on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake at 300°F/150°C for about 15 minute (More or less depending upon thickness of cookies) or until slightly browner than raw dough.
  • Cool cookies briefly on baking sheet, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Package airtight: they stay very crisp.
  • Makes about 15 dozen cookies, each 1/8 inch thick and 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
