Original recipe yields 3 dozen



  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 RECIPE IS AMAZING! The only bad thing about it was that people didn't believe me when I said that I made them myself. However, I did change the recipe a little by adding an extra 1/4 cup of sugar. As a little tip, I recommend that you put the dough in the freezer, instead of the refrigerator. Also, because the dough is somewhat sticky, I put ALOT of flour on the countertop before trying to roll it out.



I can't review this fairly because I followed one reviewers advice and upped the sugar and butter. The cookies were way too buttery and spread all over the sheet. I definitely would not us 1 and 1/2 cups butter. WAAAAAY too much.



I made these cookies yesterday for my children for a snack at school and they were a big hit. The whole house smelled of sugar and butter while the cookies were baking. One of my daughters teachers even commited to her how good the cookies looked and the smell of the cookies. I did however, follow the advice of some of the reviewers I used 2 1/2 cups of sugar and 1 1/2 cups of real butter. I added cinnamon , instead of the vanalla. Also I put the cookie dough in the frig over night. Floured my board alot, dough was a little sticky. And the dough rolled out great. I kept the oven tem. at the suggested 325, but I cooked the cookies for only 10 min. First 5 min.on the top rack and then 5 min. on the bottom rack. The cookies turned out a light golden color that were crisp on the out side edge and soft on the inside. I made the cookies thicker that what was suggested. I was able to make 36 heart shaped cookies from the dough. This recipe is a keeper.
