Another Sugar Cookie

These cookies aren't what you would call "traditional sugar cookies". They are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and wonderful with a hot cup of tea!

Crackled Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Granulated sugar for rolling

Cream together shortening and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and flour; mix well. Shape into walnut size balls, roll in granulated sugar, and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 8 to 10 minutes or until tops are slightly cracked and sides are set (do not let edges brown).

Wow those look good Suzie. I printed the recipe out for a day of cravings. I am afraid to make them though because for me cookies have strings. I will have to have the kids over. Thanks for the recipe. I love reading your blog. Your quilts are fabulous!
