My Favorite Sugar Cookie!

I found this recipe at Savory Sweet Life. These are now my favorite sugar cookies ever!  Crisp and sweet.  My daughter whipped these up this afternoon for Bible Study. 

Sugar Cookies

  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1-1/4 c. sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup demerara, coarse sugar crystals or regular granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar until it is nice and creamy. Mix in 1 egg yolk at a time and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, and salt until cookie dough is completely mixed. Be sure to scrape down the bowl to be sure everything is mixed. Using a medium scoop, form dough balls and roll them in sugar crystals. Place cookie balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper 2 inches apart from one another. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges just start to brown. Remove from oven and allow cookies to remain on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
