Victoria's Sentimental Sugar Cookies

I grew up making and eating these delicious Sugar Cookies.  Sentimental Sugar Cookies are great all year round cookies as well as holiday cookies. You can use colored sugar on the top or leave them plain. 

INGREDIENTS

½ Cup Softened Butter

½ Cup Shortening

2 Cups Sugar

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar

¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

3 Egg Yolks

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1¾ Cups Unbleached Flour

Preheat your oven to 300° F.  In a large size bowl beat together the butter and shortening with an electric mixer on high for 30 seconds.  Add the sugar, baking soda,salt and cream of tartar.  Beat until well combined.  Now beat in the egg yolks and vanilla.  Turn your mixer to low and beat in the flour.  Remove the beaters and shape the dough into 1 inch balls. Place the cookie balls 2 inches apart on parchment paper lined baking sheets.  Bake for 12 minutes until the
edges are set.  Make sure not to let the edges brown.  Remove from the oven and
cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 3 minutes.  Transfer the cookies to wire cool.  Decorate with colored sugars if you desire.  Makes 48 cookies.
