Mrs. Fields Sugar Cookies

I've been searching for a good sugar cookie recipe. Here's one I like by request of Misha, who also really liked them.

2 c. flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 c. butter

Cream butter, & sugar. Add egg & vanilla & mix again. Add dry ingredients & mix well. Form into a ball & wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate 1 hour. Roll out on floured surface to 1/4" thick. Cut out with cookie cutters. Bake 325 degrees for 12-14 min. Pull them out before they get golden or they will be too hard. Transfer to cooling rack to cool.

I added an extra tsp. of vanilla, the recipe actually only called for 1 tsp. I like vanilla a lot! I haven't yet tried, but I think they would be fabulous if you switched out the vanilla for lemon or almond extract. I also think they would be good rolled in cinnamon & sugar.
