From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser


1/2 c butter

1/2 c shortening

1 1/2 c sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

Blend in:

2 3/4 c flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

Shape dough into balls.

Roll in sprinkles.

Place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake @ 400, 10 -12 minutes.

The cookies will crack as they bake.

If the cracks look wet, put the cookies back in the oven for another minute or two.

Cool 4 minutes to let set before transferring to cooling racks.

Store at room temp in sealed containers.


  • Hard Cookies? If the cookies get hard, add a piece of bread to the container. The bread will get hard & the cookies will soften. This trick works with all cookies.
  • Want them thicker? Add 2 Tbsp flour.
