Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine butter and 3/4 cups sugar and beat until light and creamy.
  3. Add baking soda and mix until incorporated. Add vinegar.
  4. Gradually mix in flour and vanilla. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
  5. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in remaining 1/4 cup sugar, mixed with your favorite colored sugar sprinkles.
  6. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet (cookie will spread quite a bit, so leave plenty of room).
  7. Flatten to 1/4 inch thickness with the bottom of a glass, dipped in sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes, until light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving to cooling rack.
