Author/Submitted by: Agnes Da Costa of Chicago, Chicago Tribune second annual Food Guide Holiday Cookie Contest December 14, 1989
Servings: 36
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  cup  Butter, softened
1/2  cup  Sugar, plus 1 1/2 tablespoon
1 3/4  cups  All-purpose flour
1  teaspoon  Vanilla
    Sugar, for rolling

1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add flour, a little at a time, then vanilla. Stir until blended.

2. Roll dough into small balls the size of a walnut, then roll the balls in sugar. Flatten with cookie stamp or bottom of a glass. Put onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until edges are lightly browned, 17 to 20 minutes.

This dough needs no chilling, rolling or cutting. It is easily doubled. Honorable mention went to Agnes Da Costa of Chicago.
