Recipe of the day: Sugar Cookies

Favorite Sugar Cookies

2 ½ cups sifted flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs

Heat oven to 375. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Add sifted dry ingredients, stirring to mix thoroughly. Chill one hour. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (or roll out and cut into shapes) and place 2 ½ inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Flatten dough balls by pressing with the bottom of a drinking glass coated with sugar (optional). Bake 8 minutes until golden brown.  Remove at once to racks to cool. Great with frosting.

Tip for soft cookies – don’t overbake!
