BUTTER COOKIE DOUGH AND FROSTING

1 1/2 cups butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt together until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and beat until well mixed. Cover dough and chill 1 hour. Work with 1/4 of the dough at a time, keeping the remaining dough refrigerated. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick between two sheets of waxed paper. Cut dough into desired shapes. Place cookies on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool; cool completely.

Frosting:

2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl, beat all ingredients together and use to frost cookies.
