Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

I have been making this cut-out cookie recipe for many, many years.  It's my favorite! 

Sift together:

2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp salt

In a separate bowl, cream together:

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar

Blend into above creamed mixture:

1 egg, unbeaten
1 tsp vanilla

Gradually add dry ingredients to creamed mixture; mix well.  Chill dough.  Roll out on surface sprinkled with powdered sugar to 1/4" thickness.  Cut into desired shapes with floured cutters.  Bake at 375 for 8 minutes on parchment lined cookie sheets.


2 1/2 TBS soft butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 TBS cream or evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

Cream butter & powdered sugar together.  Add milk & vanilla.
