Valentine Sugar Cookies

Valentine Sugar Cookies created by eabeler

These cookies are better than Grandma's! It's important to use both shortening and butter in this recipe. The butter makes them soft on the inside, and the shortening makes them crisper on the outside. To frost them, I use equal parts of butter and cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and enough powdered sugar to pull it together.

  1. Hello Dot
    This recipe is incredible I made 36 large plus some smaller cookies, about 10. The recipe does not indicate how the integral them out so I rolled them to a 4th of an inch. This recipe is a soft dough needs a lot of flour to roll out.

    I made these cookies last night and they were not good - the texture was too cakey and they weren't sweet. Also, the sugar is listed in the ingredients but then not listed in the directions for the recipes - I bake a lot so know when to add the sugar but this omission could mess someone up.
