    Cream butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until light
    and fluffy. Beat in flour and salt. Knead the dough
    briefly until smooth. If dough is too sticky, add a bit
    more flour. (Dough can be refrigerated up to several
    days; soften lightly before shaping cookies.)

    Heat oven to 325ºF/165ºC. Have ungreased baking sheets

    Pat half of the dough out on lightly floured surface to
    1/2" thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired
    shapes. Place cookies 2 inches apart on baking sheets.
    Bake until light brown on edges, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool
    on wire racks.

    Note: The sheep cookie cutter used by Koenig is a
    Hallmark cutter that is no longer available. A sheep
    pattern can be made out of cardboard and placed over
    dough; cut out the shape with a small knife.

    of chocolate can be used for eyes after baking.
