    My mom makes these every Christmas and sometimes for other holidays. They're soft and moist! Cook and prep time are approximate and don't account for chill time.

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Allow butter to soften (not melt!) at room temperature. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.
    2. 2
      Add egg, vanilla, cream of tartar and baking soda.
    3. 3
      Add flour alternately with milk.
    4. 4
      Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator. (I usually chill it overnight.).
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    6. 6
      Roll out with plenty of flour to keep from sticking, but try to avoid incorporating too much flour into the dough since it will make the cookies less moist.
    7. 7
      Cut out into circles or with your choice of cookie cutters. Carefully transfer cookies to an ungreased cookie sheet.
    8. 8
      Bake on a cookie sheet in the oven until they become a light gold color. Watch them carefully so that they don't get overdone.
    9. 9
      Allow to cook completely before icing.
    10. 10
      For icing, put a couple of tablespoons of not-quite-boiling water into a large bowl. Add the confectioners' sugar and mix together, adding more water as you need to form a thick paste. Color, as desired.
    11. 11
      Spread about 1 tablespoon of icing on each cookie. Decorate with colored sugar and sprinkles as desired.

      these are a very soft a moist cookie! Im convinced now that i am completly unable to make roll out cookies, not to the recipes fault because its happened every time with quite a few diffrent recipes lol even with chilling overnight -so i took the easy way out and lopped balls onto a cookie tray and flattened them out with a pam sprayed spoon. I got 60 medium sized cookies, and it took about 8 minutes for the edges to get a very golden brown, tho the tops never quite got golden. I made red, green, purple and blue colored cookies, and had to make three and a third batches of iceing to cover them all well. *update* i totally forgot to update, these came out of the freezer and dethawed on the counter overnight and fares just fine. your picture is so much better then mine poo so i dont think ill post it lol but thanks again for the great recipe - one of my cookie tray recipents said these were her favorite on the tray - and it has alot of diffrent kinds on it!
