     Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Cream the butter; gradually add the
   sugar, beating with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together
   the flour and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and stir with a wooden spoon
   to thoroughly combine. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board to
   1/4-inch thickness.  Cut out with heart-shaped cookie cutters. Place on an
   ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with red sugar
   crystals, if desired.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until lightly browned.
   Store in airtight containers with waxed paper between the layers of
   cookies.  Makes 3 to 4 dozen. Penny Halsey (ATBN65B).
