Christmas Sugar Cookies

Since I was a kid me and my sisters have been making these sugar cookies. I am happy to say I now make them with my own kids. I don't know where the recipe orginated, I just know that we got it from my grandmother. I don't like cutout sugar cookies that are hard to bite through. That is why I love this recipe. The cookies are crisp on the outside but soft in the middle.


2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 c sifted Confectioner sugar
1 c. Butter
1 egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Almond


Combine flour, soda and cream of tartar and set aside. Cream sugar and butter. Add egg and flavoring and then add dry ingredients. Chill for two hours. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out dough and cut into shapes. Bake for 7-8 minutes


  1. About how many cookies do you get from this recipe?


    1. I didn't count and it all depends on how big your cookie cutters are. We use smaller cutters and I think I get about 2 dozen.
