Aunt Zana's Amish Sugar Cookies (Eggless)

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Kim D.

My Mom received this recipe from her mother's sister. My family, as well as my other aunts and cousins have all enjoyed these crisp little cookies for years. It's one of our favorites and hopefully it will become a favorite of your family too! (I guessed at the number of cookies the recipe yields--they tend to disappear before I can ever count them)

My husband is allergic to eggs so I was very excited to find this recipe. He loves these cookies, we all love them. I made a batch for my daughter to take to school for a class party and they were a BIG hit!!! The teachers were asking for a copy of the recipe and if they could have the left over cookies to take home. I have also substituted almond flavoring for the vanilla as well as lemon.
