I've had a couple of requests for the 100+ year-old sugar cookie recipe. This far surpasses ANY I've ever eaten, and sugar cookies are my absolute favorite. I like simplicity, what can I say?!?
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour milk ( use 1 T vinegar to make sweet milk sour)
1/2 cup shortening (or 1 stick butter)-- I've only ever used shortening. I don't know how these will turn out with butter!
1/2 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 t vanilla
Add enough flour to make a rollable dough
Roll and cut out-- bake about 8 minutes at 375*
These can be flavored-- or have food coloring added.
