“I have been making these since the 70’s. The recipe was passed on to me by my mother-in-law and I have yet to find a better tasting sugar cookie! I sprinkle them with colored sugar for the holidays.”

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the shortening and sugar. Mix in eggs and beat well.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to shortening mixture in thirds. After each third, add 1/4 cup of the milk and mix well. Dough will be soft.
  4. Put dough on well-floured surface and knead in just enough additional flour so it can be rolled. Cut with your favorite cookie cutter.
  5. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. I rotate my sheets, baking each sheet 5 minutes on middle, then 5 minutes on top rack.

INGREDIENT TAGS: white sugar, shortening, milk, eggs, baking powder, baking soda, salt, all-purpose flour
