1/2 tsp. salt
6 cups flour

-if it gets too stiff for your mixer remove the bowl from the mixer and continue
with a wooden spoon. Cover the bowl with Saran wrap and refrigerate
overnight. The next day, take out a softball sized amount of dough from the
bowl (leave the rest in the refrigerator). Flour your counter, place dough ball
on top of the flour, and flour the top of the dough ball. Use a rolling pin to roll
the dough to 1/4" thick. Use cookie cutters to cut your cookies. Place cookies
on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes. Cool
completely, then frost as desired.
