Baking cookies

Some cookie recipies I found, here in Europe is really common to bake them during christmas time:

Christmas Butter Cookies

1 cup Softened butter
2 tablespoons Vanilla Extract
3 cups flour
2/3 cups Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 teaspoons Salt
 
Cream the softened butter with the sugar until fluffy and light. Stir in vanilla extract. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating mixture after each egg addition. Add the flour and salt, mixing well. Wrap in plastic wrap and let chill in refrigerator 3 hours or overnight. On a sparsely floured pastry cloth, using a floured rolling pin, roll dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutter into Christmas shapes. Place each about 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Bake for 10 mintues at 350 degrees F. Allow to cool complete before decorating. Recipe makes about 4-5 dozen cookies.
  

White Christmas Cookies

1/2 cups Butter
1/2 cups Shortening
2 cups Sugar
4 Eggs; beaten
4 cups Flour; sifted
1/8 tsp Ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp Ground cinnamon
 
Cream shortening and butter together. Add sugar, mixing until fluffy and light. Beat in the eggs. In separate bowl, sift flour, cinnamon and nutmeg together, stir into creamed mixture. Dough will be quite stiff. Chill in a plastic wrap covered bowl in refrigerator 3 hours, or preferrably overnight. Roll the dough thinly on a floured pastry cloth with a well floured rolling pin or between two pieces of plastic wrap. Cut into star or other shapes with favorite cookie cutters. Place 1 to 2 inches apart on to greased or oiled cookie sheets. Bake in 350 F degree oven for 10-11 minutes, til crisp. Should be straw colored when done. Gently remove from pan to allow to cool completely on wire racks.
