Danish Butter Cookies



We recently held our family Heritage Dinner at my sister, Pam's house.  We make foods from our Scandinavian Heritage.  I made Danish Butter cookies that were out of this world yummy.  But, we forgot to get a close up picture of them.  But here is a picture of me with my sisters with all three desserts.  The cookies are in the middle.  They were pretty and very delicious.  We sprinkled them with  colored sugars before baking.  


DANISH BUTTER COOKIES 
1 c. sweet butter
1 egg
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg. Mix dry ingredients, sifted once. Add a little at a time. Add vanilla. Roll into small balls about the size of a walnut. Flatten with a fork. Sprinkle with sugar.  Bake at 350 to 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
