The Best Butter Cookies – Cat Johnson

This is my grandmother’s recipe so I’ve been eating these cookies for as long as I can remember. The recipe has sure withstood the test of time, and even my best friend whose husband is a professional chef uses this easy, versatile butter cookie recipe. I use different themed cookie cutters depending on the occasion….like a cowboy boot cutter to promote my new cowboy book release.
