1/2 cbrown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cgranulated sugar
1 tspvanilla extract

How to Make Angel Sugar Crisp Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Cream butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
Sift flour. Resift with baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Blend until well combined.
Roll dough into 1" balls and roll tops (or entire dough ball) in additional sugar. Place sugar side up on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake 10 minutes or until light brown on bottoms. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
