Its been 4 solid days of baking....including my favorite Sugar Cookie recipe that my Mother had as a clipping from the newpaper circa 1945 - Kris Kringle Cookies. These say Christmas to me!
Kris Kringle Cookies
1 Cup Soft Butter
2 Cups Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda dissolved in 2 Tablespoons of Milk
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
About 5 Cups of Flour
Cream Butter and Sugar.
Add Vanilla, Milk, Soda and Eggs.
Then add dry ingredients sifted with about 3 cups of Flour.
Add enough flour to make a dough that may be rolled.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 8-15 minutes.
- That is directly from the clipping. I find 350 degrees for about 6 minutes does it right for me - watch these as they can burn in a matter of seconds!!
