Grandma Davis’ Sugar Cookies
Grandma Davis isn’t even my Grandma, but her sugar cookie recipe is the one I make every year.
- 1 1/2 cup shortening or butter (I usually use butter flavored Crisco)
- 2 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 t. vanilla
- 5 cups flour
- 2 t. baking soda
- 2 t. salt
Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, combine. Add the flour, salt and baking soda, mix well, form into a ball, cover and chill over night.
Roll onto a floured surface and cut with cookie cutters.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 7 minutes.
WATCH CLOSELY for them to be soft, you can’t let them brown.
Frost with powdered sugar icing.
Or… you can cheat like me. By plain classic white frosting in a can. Zap it in the microwave for a few seconds, and drizzle on your cookies.
The number of cookies can vary based on the size of the cutter you use.
