Sugar Cookies

I did something different and didn't use royal icing with these. I found a vanilla frosting icing in a can at target that looked interesting so I picked it up to try on these.

  • 1 1/3 cups butter shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 4 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. In a large bowl, mix together shortening, sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix until smooth and combined.
  2. Add eggs and mix till combined.
  3. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt, mix together with a fork.
  4. Adding a little bit at a time add flour mixture to shortening mixture.
  5. Mix until both are completely combined.
  6. Divide dough in half, shape into ball and wrap in plastic wrap.
  7. When dough is chilled preheat oven to 350.
  8. Roll out dough and use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
  9. Bake about 6-8 minutes
  10. Let cool completely before frosting.
