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.

Serves / Yields

3 dozen

Preparation Instructions

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.

Helpful Hints

If you don't have a cookie press, any greased, flat surface will work.

Simple and simply delicious. Rave reviews from all who tried them. If you don't have Old Town Spiced Sugar to sprinkle on top, just use regular sugar, or whatever specialty sugar you have around. Next time, I'm going to try some crystalized ginger sugar.
