1 c Butter, or margarine
1 ts Vanilla extract
1 1/2 c Sugar
3 1/2 c Flour,all-purpose; sifted
2 ts Cream of tartar
1/2 ts Salt
After cookies are baked, frost with a thin powdered sugar frosting
that has been tinted with food coloring. Sprinkle with decorator
sprinkles while frosting is still moist. 1-Cream butter and vanilla
together. Add sugar slowly, creaming until light and fluffy. Add
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. 2-In a separate bowl,
stir dry ingredients together and slowly add to creamed mixture.
Chill for 3 hours or more. 3-Roll chilled dough out on a well-floured
surface to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes. Bake on an
ungreased cookie sheet in preheated 375 degree oven for 6-8 minutes.
Do not overbake. This makes about 6 dozen small cookies. This recipe
was a first place winner for 9 year-old Tamara Dixon of Oceanside Ca
at the Del Mar fair 1993.
