  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and confectioners' sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Blend into the butter mixture. Divide dough into thirds and shape into balls.
  3. Working with 1/3 of the dough at a time, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface. With a knife, cut dough into rectangles about 2 inches high by 3 inches long. (6 x 8 cm).
  4. Place rectangles on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven until lightly browned. Cool completely on wire rack.

Dough was very easy to work with. Cooked 10-12 min on an air-bake pan. The flags were adorable-took to a St Patty's party so I made mine a little smaller than the recommended 2x3. Delicious.
