DIRECTIONS

  • Combine baking soda, cream of tartar and flour mixing well. With your hands, knead in softened butter.
  • In a small bowl, beat eggs and mix well with sugar and vanilla.
  • Pour egg mixture into flour mixture and again using your hands, mix this really well.
  • Chill dough. It will be quite hard when it is completely chilled. Using a table knife, cut off chunks to roll out on a well-flour surface to desired thickness - thin cookies will get crispy when baked, thicker cookies will puff and stay soft. Cut into desired shapes.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven until the edges begin to brown; be careful not to overcook if you want them to stay soft after cooling!
  • After completely cooled, decorate the cookies. These will freeze really well!
