... to share the love. These sugar cookies are my favorite. One of my Primary teachers used to make them every Sunday. After I got married, I asked for the recipe for the cookies I could never forget. They're called "Never Fail Sugar Cookies".
2 c sugar
2 c butter flavored Crisco (or butter/margarine)
6 t baking powder
7 c flour
4 t vanilla
Cream sugar and butter/Crisco together. Add eggs, vanilla and dry ingredients one a t a time. Mix thoroughly. Roll and cut/shape. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
**I like to make these really thick. And this recipe is for a less sweet cookie (a la European sweets). You could add more sugar if you'd like.
Here is a frosting recipe I really like, too.
2 lbs. powdered sugar (boxed is better)
1 c Crisco
about 1/2 c water (or milk)
splash or two of vanilla
Mix with an electric mixer until it reaches desired consistency.
