Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Cream butter and shortening with the sugars.

  2. Beat eggs and add to the butter along with the baking soda and cream of tartar, blend together thoroughly.

  3. Gradually add the flour until well blended.

  4. Either roll into small balls and flatten slightly with a glass dipped in sugar, or roll out on slightly floured surface (not too thin) and cut out shapes with cookie cutters.

  5. Grease cookie sheets, and Bake in 350 degree oven 7-10 minute Be careful not to over bake, they should still be white on the top and a very light brown on the bottom. Cool.

  6. If you want to put sugar on them, sprinkle with colored sugar before baking, otherwise frost with frosting once they are cool, either store bought or your own recipe. They turn out best with sugar or frosting as opposed to plain.
