    Cookgirl's Note:

    One of the many benefits in moving is finding long lost recipes. Case in point;-this sugar cookie recipe which has been missing for at least ten years. The only real change was reducing the temperature by 50°. From the { original } Betty Crocker's Boys and Girls Cookbook from the 1950's. My brother's copy is tattered and torn; both front and back covers are missing but the recipe survived thankfully.

      I was delighted to find this, having left my childhood cookbook behind years ago. But when I tried this the batter was too runny. Further research revealed that the amount of milk should be 2 tablespoons. It makes a huge difference.

      I remember this one! A childhood favorite that produced THE best sugar cookies. I'm glad to have the recipe again after [mumble-mumble] years.

      This Recipe Reminds me of Tea Cakes My Great Grandmother Use to bake, Though I altered it a little by also adding 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract and Baking 12-15 minutes because after tasting the first batch We Prefer a Crunchier Cookie.. Other than this It is a Wonderful Sugar Cookie/Tea Cake Recipe 5 Stars Here!!
