 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Unsalted softened butter
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 4 c Flour
  • 1/4 ts Salt


Preparation time: 25 minutes Cooking time: 20 to 25 minutes

1. Cream butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Beat
in flour and salt. Knead the dough briefly until smooth. If dough is too
sticky, add a bit more flour. (Dough can be refrigerated up to several
days; soften slightly before shaping cookies.)

2. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Have ungreased baking sheets ready.

3. Pat half of the dough out on lightly floured surface to 1/2 -inch
thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes. Place cookies 2
inches apart on baking sheets. Bake until light brown on edges, 20 to 25
minutes. Cool on wire racks.
Note: The sheep cookie cutter used by Koenig is a Hallmark cutter that is
no longer available. A sheep pattern can be made out of cardboard and
placed over dough; cut out the shape with a small knife.
