    Cook-a-holic's Note:

    This sugar cookie recipe goes way back in my family, at least to my maternal great-grandmother. My mom always had a lot of cookie cutters, so we would make these for different occasions and decorate them with colored icing.

    Sugar Cookies

    Buttercream Frosting


    1. 1
      Cream together shortening, egg, vanilla and sugar.
    2. 2
      In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture in three phases, alternating with the three tablespoons of milk.
    3. 3
      Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. At this point the dough can be kept overnight in the fridge or for several months in the freezer.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Flour a smooth surface, and roll the dough to 1/4 inch, working with about half the dough at a time. Put the remaining dough in the fridge to stay chilled. Cut out the cookies with cookie cutters of your choice.
    5. 5
      Place cut-out cookies on a cookie sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Allow cookies to cool before decorating with frosting.
    7. 7
      Buttercream Frosting: Cream softened butter and sugar. Beat in vanilla and milk, adding milk by teaspoons and beating until frosting is smooth and of desired spreading consistency.
