  1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla; continue to cream until smooth. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F ( 190 degrees C ).
  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place onto a cookie sheet. Cookies should be at least 2 inches apart. Lightly grease the bottom of a glass, dip it into the granulated sugar, and press the cookies down slightly. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheet to cool on wire racks.

Very tasty cookies. Followed the recipe very sticky, had to add about 1/2 cup more flour. Didn't cook in 8 to 10 minutes but much longer. Not crispy. Won't make these again. I'll stick to my ch...

This was a great treat! They were very yummy, which was surprising because I don't normally like sugar cookies! I followed one suggestion to make sandwich cookies with the sides dipped in sprink...

I make this all the time, omiting the vanilla and using peppermint flavoring instead.

YUM! My family loved them. Next time we're going to make frosting sandwiches, rolling the sides in sprinkles. Crispiest while still warm.

Really wonderful, ligth, crisp cookies.

I made these cookies and I only used 3/4 cup sugar. They tasted like chocolate chip cookies but without the chips. I think they are super yummy.

These cookies have a wonderful vanilla flavor. I rolled them into balls and they flattened themselves. They made a very nice, soft cookie. I will definately make them again.
