Countdown New Years Cookies

Countdown New Years Cookies


  • ¾ cups Butter
  • 1 c White Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 -½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 -½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine room temperature (not melted) butter and sugar until smooth.

2. Add eggs and vanilla and combine.

3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, and salt. This is an important step; you want to avoid lumps in your dough.

4. Slowly add dry ingredients into wet batter until fully incorporated.

5. Drop dough onto a large piece of saran wrap, mold it into a 4×4 square, and refrigerate for at least one hour. I often let mine sit overnight.

6. When ready to bake the cookies, generously flour a flat surface and roll out the dough. You can use as much flour as you need! I prefer to make cookies about 1/4? to 1/2? thick, but you can go thicker and still have successful results.

7. For best results, bake on silpat or parchment paper.

8. Bake at 325-350 degrees for 5 to 8 minutes.
