Title: Sugar Cookies
Post by: carrotjello on January 14, 2006 11:37:29 AM
I don't know about you, but I LOVE sugar cookies. This is the recipe I use for Christmas, Valentines day, St. Patricks Day, and Easter. I buy a can of white frosting, add peppermint extract, and whatever colors you want, and voila! Delicious cookies to share with everyone!

"Best Ever" sugar cookies
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups butter, margarine, or butter flavored crisco
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla
cream together well
4 cups flour
2 tsp soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
sift together and add sifted mixture to creamed mixture. Mixture will be soft. Chill at least 2 hours. Roll out dough onto lightly floured surface to about 1/4 thick, and cut with cookie cutters. Sprinkle with sugar if you don't want to frost them. Bake at 350 for 10-12 mins. (This is my great grandmas recipe)
