This recipe for ROLLED SUGAR COOKIES is loved by everyone who tastes them.  They are definitely a blue ribbon recipe!  I love how quickly and easily they are to make because the dough is so easy to work with--no chilling even necessary before rolling!  What makes them so good is that they aren't too sweet, so when you decorate them, they are just the right amount of sweetness!  Also, they keep their form when you cut them out, not spreading and keeping any indentations or detail, in your cookies.  I frost these with a yummy butter cream frosting, and they are always a hit with the family!

2/3 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon soda
1/4 cup milk
4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter and sugar.  Beat eggs together; add to butter/sugar mixture.  Dissolve soda in milk.  Add remainder of the dry ingredients alternately with milk/soda mixture.  Add vanilla.  Blend.  Use hands to form a nice dough.  Roll 1/4" thick and cut with cookie cutters.  Bake 8 minutes at 400 degrees.  Cool.  Frost with butter cream frosting.  Sprinkle with crystallized sugar.  ENJOY! 

1 cube butter, room temperature
dash of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 lbs. powdered sugar
cream or evaporated milk (enough for desired consistency)
Whip the softened butter; add dash of salt and vanilla.  Add powdered sugar and stir by hand or mixer on low, until mixture is thick and starting to hold together.  Add cream, a little at a time, and continue mixing, until desired consistency.  Beat on high for a minute when desired consistency is reached.
