Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

2 cups salted butter, cold and cut in pieces
1 cup packed light brown sugar
4 1/2 cups flour, divided
optional, sprinkles

Preheat oven to 325. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter and brown sugar. using a paddle attachment, mix until fluffy and light. add 3 1/2 cups of the flour and mix until combined. on a large board, sprinkle 1/2 cup of flour. Knead dough by hand for 5 minutes, adding as much of the remaining 1/2 cup flour as needed to make a soft dough.
The dough should be soft and pliable, similar to play doh, not sticky. work in desired amount of sprinkles if using. you may not use all the flour, depending on how dough feels. Form a ball. Wrap tightly and chill for 30 minutes. Roll dough out to about 1/2 inch thickness.
Either cut into 3x1 rectangular strips or use a cookie cutter for shapes. Place each cookie 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Poke cookies with fork to make design if not using sprinkles. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Smaller shapes require less baking time. Cool completely on wire racks.
