Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe

I may have given the wrong Rolled Sugar Cookies page number last week… On purpose. No cheating! 🙂 All I know is that our family is very thankful or Mrs. Robert Collins of Fairfax, Missouri!

Rolled Sugar Cookies

3 c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp soda
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 c shortening (no butter!)
2 eggs, beaten
1 c sugar
1/4 c milk
1 tsp

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, & nutmeg; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Combine eggs, sugar, milk, & vanilla; mix well, & pour into crumb mixture. Stir with a fork until all dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball, & chill 1-2 hours.
Work with half of dough at a time; store remainder in refrigerator. Roll dough out on a lightly floured board to 1/8″ thickness; cut with shaped cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets; bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes until very lightly browned.
Yield: 4 1/2 doz.

Easy peasy frosting: powdered sugar, milk to taste, food coloring. Mix to a spreadable but not too runny so that it oozes off.

Now, go eat!!
