1 c. flour, sifted

1/2 cup confectioners sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Using a wooden spoon, 
blend in the butter and vanilla extract. Dough will be stiff.

Dust your hands with flour, and shape the dough into 3/4 inch balls. Set on 
an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten by pressing with the tines of a 

fork, crosswise.

Bake approximately 15 minutes, or until a pale golden brown. Remove 
immediately from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 24 

Note: Do not place cookies on a warm cookie sheet, as this will cause them 
to spread before cooking.

Variation: Add finely chopped blanched almonds, macadamia nuts, or pistachio 
nuts. Can also substitute almond extract, lemon or orange oils, or liqueurs.

These little cookies work well for dipping in chocolate, especially when 
using almonds. Enjoy.
