Melt in Your Mouth Sugar Cookies

Today's Vintage recipe makes a great St.Patrick's Day treat if you cut them into Shamrock shapes and sprinkle them with Green Sugar crystals! Be careful when you bake these, they do burn easily!

Melt in Your Mouth Sugar Cookies

1 ½ c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter
1 ¼ tsp. Vanilla
1 egg
2 ½ c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Granulated sugar

Cream butter and powdered sugar, beat in egg and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in dry ingredients except granulated sugar, and mix well. Cover and chill thoroughly, at least 4 hours.

Divide dough in half and roll out each half on a well floured surface to about ¼” thick, cut into desired shapes, sprinkle with granulated sugar, and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes, until just starting to brown on the edges.
