Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cup butter, unsalted, room temperature
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
4 teaspoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

In a medium size bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla together with a spoon (or hand mixer) until smooth. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until smooth. Chill in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes, then roll out on a floured board. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter and put on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. Cool completely. (For frosting, mix 2 cups powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons milk and half a teaspoon vanilla extract. Add a drop or two of food coloring as desired.)
