Cracked Sugar Cookies

I felt kinda guilty cause I had not made any cookies for Christmas this year. I don’t know why, to me there’s something missing if I don’t bake cookies for Christmas. So finally today I looked for some simple cookie recipes online and I decided to try this based on the good reviews. It turned out perfect! I will definitely make this again 🙂

Cracked Sugar Cookies


* 1 1/4 cups white sugar
* 1 cup butter
* 3 egg yolks
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
2. Cream together sugar and butter. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla.
3. Add flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Stir.
4. Form dough into walnut size balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Don’t flatten. Bake 10 to 11 minutes, until tops are cracked and just turning color.
