SIMPLE BUTTER COOKIES

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp grated lemon or orange rind

May be made with mixer or in a food processor.

Cream the butter; add sugar gradually.  Blend together until light and creamy, beat in the eggs.  Add the flour and greated citrus rind.  Stir until blended. 

For molded cookies: Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Press the dough into ungreased cookie mold/s and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are just light brown.  Remove from the molds while still hot.

For pastry bag or cut-out cookies:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 15 minutes.  Remove from cookie sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.

Note: To make the cut-out cookies, chill dough until chilled enough to roll out.
