Oven -- 300 degrees.
2 sticks of butter (room temp)
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 t. sale
2 c. flour added one cut at a time.
Put on cookie sheet (silpat recommended, but not necessary). I recommend small scoops. Bake at 300 for 15-18 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for one minute before removing.
Optional: add about 1/2 c. cranberries or cherries; or ice with runny powdered sugar mixed with juice of one lemon.
