Sugar Cookie Recipe

Hello my lovely friends! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

I have a friend down south who has asked for my Sugar Cookie recipe. So, today I am sharing one of the recipes with you. Sugar cookie recipes are basically all the same but this one is my mother's and it has a sprinkle of nutmeg which makes them just a little bit special. This is for you, Sarah!

Sugar Cookies

Cream together:
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
2 TBSP milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Beat until light and fluffy
1- 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Add to creamed mixture and blend well with mixer. Turn out the batter on to a floured surface and knead a few times then roll out. Cut into rounds with a cookie cutter. Place one or two raisins in the center. Bake on greased cookie sheets @ 375 for about 7-9 minutes. Watch that they don't brown too much. Optional: sprinkle with coloured sprinkles in place of the raisins. For Christmas, cut out into holiday shapes and ice with almond icing.
