Cream together 1 cup butter and 1 ½ cups sugar. Add 2 eggs, and beat until light and fluffy. Add 2 ¾ cups self-rising flour to the creamed mixture. Chill for at least one hour in the refrigerator. (I divided my dough into two equal parts in order to make half of them chocolate. These will be in a later video on making Halloween cookies.) Either way, roll the dough on a lightly floured flat surface to about ¼-inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Sprinkle each cookie with a small amount of sugar, if desired. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets (or baking pans) at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Remove immediately from cookie sheets with a flat spatula, and place on a rack or flat surface to cool. When cool, arrange cookies nicely on a large plate. Serve as is, or ice with buttercream frosting. I will be uploading a video for buttercream frosting tomorrow! Enjoy the cookies!
