Every year, around the Holidays, I like to share my Sugar Cookie Recipe with you.
It’s a great recipe. (and easy too.)
The cookies are soft, delicious and even a little bit popular in my circle of family and friends.
The recipe was given to me by my mother on my first Christmas as a new Bride. (a long time ago)
It was carefully written down, in her own handwriting, on a piece of notebook paper which has now
turned yellow. It is brittle, tattered, ripped, creased and stained. (It is priceless to me.)
Sue’s Sugar Cookies
- 1- 1/2 c. powdered sugar
- 1 c. butter or margarine
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2- 1/2 c. all purpose flour
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- Cream sugar & butter, add egg & flavoring, mix thoroughly.
- Sift dry ingredients together and stir in. (I dump)
- Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.
- Heat oven to 375°.
- Divide dough in half & roll out on lightly floured pastry sheet.
- Roll thin, but thick enough to pick up the design with the cookie cutters.
- Dip cookie cutter into flour before each cutting. Cut as many cookies from each rolling as possible. The least amount of working with the dough gives the best cookie.
- Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 7 to 8 min. or until delicately golden.
- For the Glaze I dump around a cup of powdered sugar into a bowl. Add a dash of vanilla. Add milk one tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you want. (hint: not too runny)
