2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add in butter, sugar, vanilla, and flour. (Be sure to fluff your flour before measuring to get an accurate measurement.) Mix slowly until a crumbly dough forms.

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add flour and mix until just combined. The cookie dough will be very soft and crumbly. That's the way it's supposed to be!
3. Now, you have 2 options: 1) Spread mixture on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper. Poke decorative holes with a fork and bake OR 2) Make cut out shapes like I did by kneading the dough a little and then rolling it between 2 sheets of wax paper. Then, use cookie cutters (like a small rectangle cutter) to cut out shapes. Use a spatula to gently pick them up and place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper and bake.
4. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are firm and slightly golden brown.
