2 sticks butter, softened
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon sour milk (see Note)
3 1/2 cups cake flour
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin to roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out cookies and place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden around edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note: To make sour milk, stir together 1 cup milk with either 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice. Let mixture sit 10 to 15 minutes. The milk should begin to curdle slightly. You now have sour milk for your baking needs!
Once cool, decorate with your favorite icing.
