VANILLA SUGAR COOKIES
I made these for the Live Oak Library Christmas Cookie exchange.
Recipe is from McCormick
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Mix flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Set aside. Beat sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed.
Refrigerate dough about 2 hours or until firm.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Shape dough into 1" balls. Roll in additional sugar or colored sugar
Place 2 inches apart in baking sheets.
Bake 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool on baking sheets for about a 1 minute.
Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Makes 4 1/2 dozen.
