  4. Blend until mixture is light and fluffy, almost like a spreadable frosting consistency.
  5. Slowly add flour, about 1 cup at a time.
  6. The cookie dough will be sticky.
  7. Separate dough into flat rounds; wrap between plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour or in freezer for 30 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 325.
  9. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  10. Roll dough flat to about 1/4 inch thick.
  11. Cut with your favorite cookies cutter.
  12. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are slightly golden.

Be sure to chill the dough well before rolling out.
