Posted by MelchasThese cookies are soft and delicious. I frost them with a good crusting buttercream (I use Mel's crusting BC). I use this recipe for cookie bouqets and they really hold up well.
Soft Sugar Cookies
- 3 1/2 cups flour 2 tsp Cream of tartar 1 tsp Baking Soda 1/2 tsp of salt 1 cup butter (soften) 1 1/2 cups sugar 3 eggs 1tsp of vanilla
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a wisk or sifter. Next cream the butter and sugar together, then add the vanilla and the eggs one at a time. Then add the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms. (lower elvation will be a stickier dough, higher elevation will be a stiffer dough). Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface and cut with cookie cutters. Place on a cooled cookie sheet, then bake at 350 for 8-10 min or until the edges just start to color.
