  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups flour

For Topping:

  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a 9x13 pan by greasing or lining with parchment or wax paper.
  • Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix well.
  • Add vanilla, cream of tartar, salt, and soda and mix well. Add flour and mix just until combined. Mixture should be dry and crumbly.
  • Press dough into prepared pan. It will have an uneven top, but if you prefer it to be very flat, you can use a spatula or wooden spoon to press the dough flat.
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon topping in a bowl or shaker. Sprinkle a generous amount over the top of the dough.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool before cutting into 16 long or 20 square bars.
