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.


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.
