Butter rich cookies.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 1 cup butter
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups white sugar
- 3 eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add 2 cups of the flour and the sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Slowly mix in the remaining 2 cups of flour.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/4 of an inch. Cut cookies using cookie cutters and place 1 1/2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until brown at the edges.
