Betty Crocker's Sugar Cookies for Boys and Girls

"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."

    These are a favorite with my mother and children. I used to make them thumbprint cookies with raspberry jam centers. I bake them longer when I do this and they are not too chewy

    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.
