The BEST Sugar Cookies ever...

The boys in my life devour these.
I promise, once you try them...you will never turn back.
 Super Soft Sugar Cookies
(altered from a cook book by Julie Jensen)

1/2 c butter
1/2 c margarine
1 egg
1 c powdered sugar
2 c flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
Cream together butter and margarine. Add egg and mix. Add powdered sugar and beat well.
Add remaining ingredients and mix. On a floured surface, roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick. Add some more flour if the dough is too sticky. Cut dough into whatever shape will make you smile. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 min. Cool on a wire rack and frost with a delicious cream cheese frosting.

Yum! I love sugar cookies! I've become obsessed with OBB's sugar cookie recipe. Have you tried it? How does it compare to this one?
