2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
Flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Holiday red and green sugars

Instructions

Sift together flour, soda, cream of tarter, salt and nutmeg in small bowl. Cream butter and sugar thoroughly in large mixing bowl. Add beaten eggs; then sifted ingredients. Add vanilla. Chill dough for several hours or overnight. Roll out on floured board with floured rolling pin. Cut into Christmas trees, stars, Santas or bells. Sprinkle with red or green sugar. Bake at 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Watch so they don't burn. They shouldn't look golden or brown. If you don't sprinkle with sugar, you can frost cookies when cool.
