Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies


  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup milk


In large bowl, cream shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Add alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Put mixture in refrigerator overnight. Drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet. Using flat-bottomed glass, greased and dipped into flour, flatten cookies. Sprinkle with sugar. Always put glass in flour before pressing each cookie. put remaining dough back in refrigerator between baking each pan, to keep it cool; it will handle much easier. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Recipe sounds good but I believe using real butter instead of shortening would taste much better. (06/29/2009)
