“A lot like a sugar cookie but ten times better. These cookies have a wonderful rich flavor, a very nice side to ice cream.”

  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.

these cookies tasted like a vanilla waffer but better. Don't make the balls 1 inch, or they will come out big, The size I make the balls is about a 1/2 inch and they are the size of a waffer cookie everyone likes them. to make them a soft cookie, make the balls 1 inch, set your oven to 350, and dont flatten the balls. I like them better this way.



I made these because some of the reviews stated they are like Nilla wafers. I do not believe this to be the case. I made one inch balls and pressed them flat. They spread quite a bit, but not to a point where they were crisp in the middle. Perhaps I should have left them in the oven longer? They were golden brown around the edges when I took them out. All this being said, they are great sugar cookies! I used "Vanilla Bean Crush" vanilla from King Arthur Flour.



I made these cookies for a bake sale and they were very good but for some reason they were not very crispy. I was expecting them to be a little crispier than they were, but all in all the recipe was good and I will make them again.
