1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda



Decorator sugars, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, powdered sugar and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cream of tartar and baking soda; beat at low speed until dough forms a ball.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten to about 1 1/2 inches with bottom of glass dipped in sugar; sprinkle with decorator sugars, if desired. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.

  4. I like to chill my dough for at least an hour before rolling out to cut cookies. They hold their shape a lot better and it is easier to work with the dough. These cookies are best if they are rolled into balls also. You can do all sorts of things with sugar cookies. Try some with a hershey kiss in the top of the dough before baking. You can roll them in a sugar/cinnamon mixture before baking, or you can make up your own ideas. Who doesnt love sugar cookies!!
