How to make it

  • Heat oven to 375°F. Combine butter, powdered sugar and 1/2 cup sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cream of tartar and baking soda. Beat until dough forms a ball.
  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten to about 2 inches with bottom of glass dipped in sugar; sprinkle with decorator sugars, if desired. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
  • Recipe Tip
  • If cookies spread too much, chill dough about 1 hour

    Sounds like a great sugar cookie recipe. Have you ever made pan cookies out of them? If so, did it work well? Thanks!

    Nothing taste better than a good sugar cookie, still warm and a cold glass of milk. This recipe brings out the little boy in me.
