Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add flour and mix thoroughly with hands. Chill dough. To bake, preheat oven to 300° F. Roll out dough 1/3 to 1/2-inch thick. Cut into fancy shapes with small cookie cutters. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes. The tops do not brown and the size does not change. Store in airtight container. The buttery flavor intensifies after about 2 days.
