These are seriously fantastic. One of the first things i baked after we got married & a friend requested I make them for a recent get together we had. So i did. Just make sure you have time because they do chill in the fridge for an hour before baking. =) Super easy, though! & Delish!
Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add the 1 cup sugar, baking soda, & cream of tartar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg & vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Cover & chill dough for an hour or until easy to handle.
2. Preheat oven to 375. Combine the 2 tablespoons sugar & the cinnamon. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls into sugar mixture to coat. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-11 minutes or until edges are golden. Transfer to a wire rack, cool.
Disclaimer: I am sure you all wonder why i post fattening sugary baked good recipes while i also am on a weight loss journey. Well, i want ALL the things i cooked blogged so i have a record of what i cooked in my first year of marriage (& the following years). I don't eat as much of it as i used to but am working on eating even LESS. A lot of baked goods have been posted because of the holidays, but now it is January so you should be seeing more actual meals. =)
But these are total complete deliciousness, they turn out PERFECTLY everytime, so you should try it if you're looking for a good cookie recipe!
