May 5, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups (675 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • About 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) assorted coloured sugars or candy decorations

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400ºF. In large bowl, stir sugar, butter, shortening and eggs with spoon until mixed. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
  • 2
    Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Roll balls in coloured sugar until coated. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls about 2 inches apart
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until centres are almost set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

  • Success: Be sure to use butter or margarine. Whipped products and low-fat spreads contain more water and air, making them unpredictable for baking.
