The Best Cookie Dough Recipe:
Good enough to eat without frosting but not as fun!
1 cup butter softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and beat well and then add the vanilla extract.
In another bowl or plastic bag:
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
Mix together and add to the wet mixture 1/3 at a time. Flatten the dough and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. When dough is firm take out of the fridge and roll out all sorts of shapes and sizes of cookies with your FUN cutters about 1/4 inch thick. You don’t have to use cutters, you can use a butter knife or circle shapes from your cups. Let your kid help. Bake at 350 degrees 8-10 minutes

Sugar Cookies are my go-to when I need a lift!
The huge process is definitely part of the gift for the maker as well as the receiver!
