|Dad's Sugar Cookies|
Note: These cookies are meant to be big, fat and cake-like. This makes a large recipe and will take at least 9-10 cups of flour. It can easily be cut in half. Or you can also use less milk and it will require less flour.
3 c. sugar
2 c. shortening (like Crisco, but part butter gives a better flavor.)
Cream these together well, then add:
2 cups milk
2 teas. each soda, salt & baking powder
1 T. vanilla
Add flour gradually and stir until thick enough to handle. (Can be chilled if necessary.) Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and cut with large cookie cutter. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 for about 12 min.
