Vanilla Drop Sugar Cookies


  • 3 sticks butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar

  1. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each addition.  Mix in vanilla.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.  Add, one third at a time, to butter mixture, mixing until blended after each addition.  Refrigerate dough until chilled, or overnight.
  2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into coarse sugar and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.  (I used a 1" cookie scoop)
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes, or until cookies appear set and very lightly golden on bottom.  Transfer to cooling rack.
