Let's ROLL out!!

No, we are not leaving the scene of a crime...we are gonna make the quintessential roll-out Sugar cookie!!!
Almost everyone has at least one memory of cutting cookies to leave for Santa... Now whether or not you believe in the jolly fella, you should still try these little gems for all the little gems in your life! :) 
Roll-Out Sugar Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
    2. Cream together the sugar, shortening, and eggs. Add dry ingredients and then add milk and vanilla.
    3. Roll out dough on floured surface and cut with cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not let cookies get too brown, only slightly around the edges. 
    4. Store in a tightly closed container. They freeze well also.
    Don't forget to have a lil person help and BE CREATIVE!!
