    • Preheat oven to 350F
    • Cream together sugar vanilla salt and butter
    • Work flour into the mix 1 cup at a time.
    • Once dough is formed it can be rolled into a ball, make a depression in the middle fill with fruit preserves/jam, poppy seed pastry filling or rolled and cut into cookie bars and shapes.Bake until edges brown 10-12 min.  if the dough is to soft refrigerate until firmer. can be made ahead and frozen.
