1 c. butter, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
Cream together butter and powdered sugar. Add 1 1/2 t. vanilla, 2 1/2 c. flour and 1/4 t. salt. Combine all in a mixer and mix well.
Put 6-8 drops of one color of food coloring (orange maybe for fall) on one side and 6-8 drops of another color of food coloring (perhaps yellow for fall). Mix on low for a few rounds (maybe 6 times). Just blend it a bit, not to thoroughly mix the colors.
Divide into 3 balls. Chill for 1 hour. Roll each ball into about 12″ long and 1″ in diameter and slice with a sharp knife to make “coin-like” cookies. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
