Another variation to the plain sugar cookie. I never did find out why they're called Swedish Angels. Does anyone know? Makes  2 to 3 dozen.

1/2 cup Butter or margarine, softened 125 mL
1/2 cup Shortening, softened 125 mL
1/2 cup Granulated sugar 125 mL
1/2 cup Lightly packed brown sugar 125 mL
1 Large Egg 1
1 tsp Vanilla 5 mL
2 cups All purpose flour 450 mL
1 tsp Baking soda 5 mL
1 tsp Cream of tartar 5 mL
1/4 tsp Salt 1 mL
1/2 cup granulated sugar for top 125 mL
1/2 cup cold water 125 mL

Preheat oven to 350°F [170°C]).

Cream butter, shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large bowl. Add egg and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy.

Stir in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt just until blended.

Shape dough into small balls (teaspoon/5 mL size) and dip top half  of  ball in water then sugar. Place on wax paper and using the bottom of a glass flatten slightly; transfer to ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-11 minutes or just until golden. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Store in airtight container, or freeze.
