DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the vinegar and milk to make sour milk.
  • Add vanilla to the sour milk; set aside.
  • In large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and shortening until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs, one at a time.
  • In separate bowl, blend together baking soda, salt, flour and baking powder.
  • Add flour mixture, alternately with sour milk mixture, to the creamed sugar and egg mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • On floured surface, roll out dough to desired thickness, about 1/4 inch.
  • Cut out with desired cookie cutter or cutters.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 5-7 minutes; I like mine soft.
  • Let set on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to wire rack to cool.
  • Frost when cool.
  • This recipe should make about 5-6 dozen, depending on the size of the cookie cutter you use.
