Ingredients

  • 1

    cup softened butter

  • 1 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 3

    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 3 1/2

    cup flour

  • 2

    teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

Directions

> Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir with a fork (or sift if you > prefer). Set aside. In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and sugar until > fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Add dry ingredients > a little at a time. WRAP (ziploc bag works great) - Chill overnight (or up > to 2 weeks in the refrigerator, or freeze for 2 months, defrosting overnight > in refrigerator. ) Roll on well-floured surface and cut with cookie cutters, also dipped in > flour. Bake at 375 degrees for until lightly browned. This recipe tastes > wonderful rolled thick or thin. If there is too much flour on the bottom of the > baked cookie, you can scrape with knife. You can sprinkle with plain or > colored sugar before baking, or after they have cooled you can ice them with a > thin icing made of confectioners sugar and water and a little bit of vanilla. > (allowing to dry thoroughly before stacking.) We like to ice our cookies, and > we use a kitchen paintbrush to put the icing on quickly. Sometimes I use a > fine paintbrush to paint designs using food color on top of the icing. **Best if iced then sprinkled with colored sugar
