  • Oven


  • 1 cup unsalted butter or 2 sticks, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar plus 1 tbsp for rolling
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until combined. Stir in vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, and flour. Slowly add to the butter mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes if the dough is too soft.
  • Dust a work surface with flour. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and then roll in the remaining sugar. Place on the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until cookies are set and lightly golden brown.
  • Allow cooling on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
