1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
4 cups family flour {all-purpose flour}
1 teaspoon vanilla or 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice


Cream butter and sugar thoroughly together. Add the whole unbeaten eggs and blend. Add flavoring and the flour in several portions; mix well. Turn dough out on paraffin paper and shape into a roll about two inches in diameter. Place in refrigerator and chill until solid. Slice thinly and bake on an unbuttered baking sheet in a moderately hot oven (375-degrees) until golden brown and crisp.
