Jodi’s Famous Cut-Outs                                        Jodi Stasburg (Becky’s friend)

1 cup butter (2 sticks)                                            1 tsp vanilla

1 ½ cup powdered sugar                                       1 tsp. baking soda

1 egg                                                                        ¼ tsp. cream of tartar

¼ tsp. salt                                                                2 ¾ cups flour

Mix all ingredients with a mixer.  Start with softened butter and add the rest of the ingredients.  Add the flour last.  Do not refrigerate.  The dough will be nice and soft.


If you are using a cookie cutter, roll out in powdered sugar rather than flour.  If you must, add only a tiny bit of flour.  These cookies are very light because you use powdered sugar in them.  Bake for about 8 minutes at 350° F.  If you don’t feel like rolling them out, use small spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and then press down with the bottom of a glass.
