Swiss Sugar Cookies

This is a super easy way to make delicious cookies. They can also be iced to look festive. Again, thanks to Nikki for this recipe.

Swiss sugar cookies
1 tablespoon dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy.
Gradually add flour.
Add yeast mixture and blend well.
Refrigerate dough until well chilled.
Spread sugar out on a large piece of waxed paper.
Roll walnut-sized balls of dough into the sugar, pressing flat until dough is thin, about the size of a doughnut.
Keep flipping dough and pressing into sugar during this stage.
Place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until very lightly browned around the edges.
Cool on racks.
