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.  

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.
