Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.

  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.*

Notes

*I baked my cookies 8 minutes, removed them from the oven and let them sit on the baking sheet an extra 2 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
