Recipe Time! Sugar Cookies

I'm finally getting in the holiday mood now that I've finished shopping and wrapping presents. The Christmas tree and decorations are up, and today was a baking day. My house smells like Sugar Cookies and Magic Cookie Bars. Tomorrow it'll smell like Chocolate Chip Biscotti and Kolache (Hungarian Nut Roll). Time to share a recipe!

Sugar Cookies

1 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
5-6 cups flour

Cream sugar and shortening. Stir in egg, milk, baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla. Add enough flour to make a stiff dough. Cover and chill at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.

Roll dough about 1/4" thick on a lightly floured surface and cut with cookie cutters. Bake 6-7 minutes until bottoms are light brown. Cool and store in an airtight container. Makes about 6 dozen medium-sized cookies. Frost if desired.
