1 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add brown sugar, beating well. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.

Combine flour, soda, and salt; add to butter mixture, beating just until blended.

Roll dough to 1/4" thickness between two sheets of wax paper. Cut with 4" cookie cutters. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle cookies with decorator sugar.

Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool 1 minute on cookie sheets, and carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
