Here's another holiday favorite!
- 2½ c. of flour
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 1½ c. powdered sugar
- 1 c. butter-flavored shortening
Start by beating shortening, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla in a large bowl on low for 30 seconds. Next, mix on high for one minute or until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl often. Add the flour, a little at a time, and beat on low for 20-30 seconds after each addition, until mixed well.
Drop batter by teaspoonful, two inches apart, on an ungreased cookie sheet. Next, lightly grease the bottom of a drinking glass, dip in sugar, and then use to flatten the cookies.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on racks. Enjoy!
