1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Stir-ins

1/2 cup finely chopped nuts, mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips,
mini candy-coated milk chocolate pieces and/or almond toffee bits

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine butter, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining cookie ingredients and desired stir-ins; mix well.
