Sugar cookies!

Look at what these ingredients. Simple. I am betting you probably have most of these in your kitchen already. These cookies are easy. No chilling, no rolling out, just roll into a ball and have your handy helpers press the cookie dough down with a glass coated in sugar. Easy!
Start with the butter, add the sugar, egg and vanilla. Mix well and then add the baking soda, flour, cream of tartar, and salt. Mix till all combined. Roll into balls, and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Then using the bottom of a glass, dip the glass in sugar and press the glass down on the dough to flatten. Special thanks to my handy 5 year old for her assistance today.

Simple Sugar Cookies
adapted from allrecipies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 cup Butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine above and add the following;
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
Mix to combine

Roll out dough into balls, and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten out with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until starting to turn light brown, I don't let them go that long, I let them rest on the baking sheet once out of the oven for about 2 minutes then remove to a cooling rack.
