|Traditional Sugar Cookies|
1 cup lard
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
(don't you love how yellow free range eggs make the dough?)
2 tsp. homemade vanilla
5 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
Mix, chill, roll, cut, place on greased cookie sheet, bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
Side note: do you think if I forgot the 2 cups of sugar in the sugar cookies that anyone would notice??
That's what I did the other day...uuggghhh! So much for speed baking.
2 lbs. of powdered sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 TBL. vanilla
enough milk to make a good spreading consistency.
|So, we decorated the sugar cookies with the grandkids last night.|
|They had a great time,|
|....and made some beautious masterpieces.|
|...there was an awful lot of|
|....finger licking going on!|
|....adult cookie seekers were forewarned.|
|When they were all done, they got to pick one cookie to eat. .....decisions|
