Soft, frosted and great sugar cookies for the holidays or any occasion. Laurie passed this recipe to me and they have been a household favorite for years. The secret is in the cream of tartar. Fun to make with the kids and let them decorate using the sprinkles. Even making a whole batch, you would be hard pressed to find a whole cookie left.

  • 1Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time mixing well in between each. Add vanilla and dry ingredients a bit a time, mixing well in between.
  • 2Refrigerate for two hours and remove to warm up. Divide dough in half and roll out on floured board. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
