Best Christmas Cookies

OK, here's my mom's old Christmas sugar-cookie recipe. It is actually the best.

Cream together the following:

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add to this mixture:

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda (NOT powder)
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix it up and gently kneed the dough and form into a ball. Now, here's the most important step... roll the dough out THICK, 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch (closer to 1/2 inch is better). Use cookie cutters to form cookies. Bake cookies on top rack at 400 deg F for 5 - 9 minutes, depending on thickness, to lightly golden brown.

Now frost with a yummy buttercream frosting etc. Voila!
