Wednesday Words: Sugar #Cookies

Continuing on my recent theme of sharing cookie recipes from my childhood, here is a recipe my mom and I made every year. We often ended up eating at least as much of the raw dough as we baked. Even now I sometimes make this just for the dough. After all, sometimes it’s just not worth the rolling out and cookie cutting. 😉

To distinguish this from other sugar cookies, my mom called these Good Sugar Cookies.

Good Sugar Cookies

  • 2/3 c. shortening
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 t. grated orange peel
  • 1 egg
  • 4 t. milk
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder

Cream shortening, sugar, vanilla and orange peel. Add egg and beat until fluffy. Add milk and blend in dry ingredients. Divide in half. Chill one hour, roll our 1/8″ think and cut. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 375 for six to eight minutes.
