Gradually add sifted dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mixing well.
Cover and chill several hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out a small portion of the dough at a time on a floured board to a thickness of 1/4 inch (keep remaining dough in refrigerator). Cut with a cookie cutter into desired shapes (I usually use stars).
Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
