Sugar Cookie Recipe Using Self Rising Flour

About 25 years ago I had a sugar cookie recipe that was given to me by a worker for the extension service for the county. I don't remember what the recipe called for but I do know you rolled them in balls and used self rising flour. The flavor was like none I have ever tasted. Once you started eating them you could not quit. Guess what? I have lost my old time recipe. Help!

Does this sound like it?

1 cup butter, margarine*, or butter-flavor shortening

1 egg

1 teaspoon orange extract, vanilla, or your choice

2 cups white sugar

2 1/2 cups self-rising flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Beat all ingredients except self-rising flour with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add self-rising flour and mix well.

Roll dough into balls, coat in sugar, if desired, and flatten on ungreased cookie sheet with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes until done.

Makes about four and half dozen.

* if using margarine, make sure to check the label and use one that has about 100 calories in a tablespoon. The "spreads", tubs, and some sticks have water whipped in, which lowers the calorie count, and is great for eating, but not for baking!

I have a little cookbook I got off of ebay. No sugar cookie recipe but one that tells you to roll the dough in little balls, here you go:


3/4 cup shortening (part butter or margarine)

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups sifted s/rising flour

1/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Cream shortening and sugar together. add well-beaten egg and vanilla. add flour. Chill dough until firm. Shape into balls the size of marbles. mix white sugar and nuts. Roll balls in the mixture. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet and bake in moderately hot oven (400F) for about ten minutes. cookies flatten out during baking. makes about 7 dozen.

I would bet you could just bake them plain for a sugar type cookie or just roll in the white sugar to coat them before baking.

Hope this helps!

Thank you to all who helped with the sugar cookie recipe. I think I found it. I know it doesn't use confectioner's sugar, but thanks anyway. I think the post by Jilson is it? I hope. Thanks again, Karen

Did the cookies have a slight nutmeg taste? Were the soft and light? If so I have that recipe, I will look it up for you if you think this one is it. 2 TBL of milk is also in the recipe.
