  Butter/Margarine 1 Cup (16 tbs), softened
  Brown sugar 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs) (firmly packed)

  All purpose flour 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)

In large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy.

On a lightly floured board, roll out dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
Cut out with cookie cutters (about 2 1/2 inches in diameter) and place slightly apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake in a 300° oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until firm to the touch (press very lightly to test).
Transfer to racks and let cool.
Store airtight.
