  • 1 cup butter (must be butter)

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 1/4 cups flour

Pre-heat oven to 375°F.

Put colored sugars into their own plates for rolling later.

Cream butter well in a large bowl. Add sugar and vanilla. Add the flour to make batter stiff, but do not overmix.
