Why I Love This Recipe

This is an easy recipe for cut-out sugar cookies. I've used it for what I'll just say is a "lot of years!!"

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups flour


Mix thoroughly the shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

Blend in the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Cover and chill for about an hour (less time if you're in a rush!)

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured board.

Cut into shapes.

Place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 5-6 minutes or until very light brown.
