Old Town Vanilla Buttercream Cookies Recipe
Old Town Vanilla Buttercream Cookies Notes
I wrote this recipe especially for the Spice House's Oldtown Spiced Sugar! They've been compared to snicker doodles--but better.
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Chicago Old Town Spiced Sugar
Serves / Yields
In a large bowl, beat powdered sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla.
Sift together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir until blended.
Refrigerate dough 1 hour or until firm.
Shape dough into one-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten with cookie press. Sprinkle generously with Old Town Spiced Sugar.
Bake at 350 F for 5-8 minutes, until set, being careful not to overbake.
If you don't have a cookie press, any greased, flat surface will work.
