Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour and salt with a wire whisk. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until well blended. Scrape down sides of bowl, then add the flour mixture. Blend on low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Gather dough into a ball. Flatten the ball into a disk and wrap tightly in plastic wrap or a plastic bag. Refrigerate one hour until firm.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out dough to a 1/4 inch thickness. With cookie cutters, cut dough into desired shapes and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Decorate with colored sugars or sprinkles. Bake for 13-15 minutes, being careful not to brown. Immediately transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool, flat surface.

This one will definately replace my old recipe, but they are not quite Mrs. Fields, I don't think. They are soft, yet firm enough to handle while decorating, and they really have a nice flavor....

This is a good recipe. I added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar - the original didn't taste sweet enough to me. Roll them out thick and under-cook them just a bit. Also, they taste alot better with fro...

My dough turned out really gooey. I couldn't roll it or anything. I was so disappointed because all the other reviews were so good on this but it turned out terribly.
