I love chewy sugar cookies and this recipe was a hit! The original said it only made 12 cookies, but I ended up woth 26 mini ones that come out to 75 calories a piece. Not too horrible!
1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
-Cream together sugar and butter. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla.
-Add flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Stir.
-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.
