  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 2 cups white flour (not unbleached)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Ingredients for butter icing:

  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1-2 teaspoons of flavouring (I used coconut)


  1. Cream sugar and butter
  2. Add egg, then dry ingredients
  3. Roll dough into 2 discs; wrap tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate
  4. Roll and cut into desired shapes
  5. Bake at 325F for 5 to 7 minutes, depending upon cookie size (they need to be barely brown on the bottom, and a white cookie)
  6. You can also drop on cookie sheet, and press with glass covered in sugar

Instructions for Icing:

  1. Combine ingredients, and knead (dough will be the consistency of play dough)
  2. Refrigerate until cool; roll onto parchment paper, cut out
  3. Brush cookie lightly with water, lift cut out icing with a spatula onto cookie and decorate
