Carol's Sugar Cookies
- 1 C Butter Flavored Crisco
- 1 C Granulated Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 3 C Flour
Dough will be soft. Do not refrigerate. Use remaining flour to keep dough from sticking while rolling out. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies and bake in 400 degree oven for seven minutes. Do not allow edges to brown. Baking times may need to be adjusted.
Allow cookies to cool and decorate with your favorite frosting recipe. (Mine is in my head! I just add ingredients until it looks and tastes right, but here are some things to help you...)
My Favorite Frosting Recipe
1/4 - 1/2 C butter, softened
1 tsp Vanilla
Milk (about 1/4 cup)
Dash of salt
Cream butter and add vanilla. I then begin adding powdered sugar and milk alternately until I have a fluffy white frosting. When I am happy with the consistency, I add a dash of salt. A seasoned southern belle once told me, "The salt makes the sweet sweeter."
Add food coloring and sprinkles - or not. It's really about what makes you happy!
