Vanilla Crisps

These cookies are really good basic butter cookies.  This recipe came from my mom's old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.  It couldn't have been any easier to throw together.  I already had all the ingredients.  They look a little plain on their own, so I dressed them up with some colored sugar and stencils that I had.  You can decorate them however you want.  They're nothing fancy--just really good. 

Vanilla Crisps

1 stick butter or margarine
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375.  Cream butter and sugar.  Add salt and vanilla.  Add egg, beating well.  Stir in flour and mix well.  Drop from a teaspoon 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten with floured glass.  Bake 8-10 minutes.  Remove immediately from pan, and cool on rack.  Yields about 3 dozen small cookies.
