READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by staceyelee

Fantastic recipe when made correctly rolls like a charm. This is one of the many recipes from my grandmothers cookbook. She passed away in May of 2005 and I am recording her wonderful recipes for my family and the many generations that will follow. I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we do. I have not made each one yet-so cooking time and servings may vary.Blessings from FOURMRANCHWIFE in Texas

Awesome cookies! They taste really fancy. Hahaha. But, when I make them again, I think I'll use 2 cups of powdered sugar instead of 1 and 1/2. They just weren't quite sweet enough for me.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre heat the oven to 350*.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and extracts.
  3. Combine the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Chill 1 hour.
  4. Roll the chilled dough on a clean flat surface that has been dusted with powdered sugar. Roll to 1/8"- cut with cookie cutters and transfer to a ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 7-8 minute at 350*.
  6. Frost with your favorite cookie frosting or eat plain. Nanny usually left them plain.
