Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter , softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2½cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar

  1. In large bowl, mix powdered sugar & butter together.
  2. Mix in egg & vanilla until smooth.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar & cinnamon until well blended. Cover & refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F (if using dark or nonstick cookie sheet, heat oven to 350°F).
  5. Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll half of dough at a time to ¼ inch thick. (I like to place a piece of waxed paper over the top when I'm rolling out the dough so it doesn't stick to the rolling pin).
  6. Cut with 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter.
  7. Place on cookie sheets, 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon & sugar.
  8. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until light golden.
