Best Sugar Cookie and Frosting Recipe EVER

Got this recipe from my Mama. She rules.

Sugar Cookies

2/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
4 tsp milk
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Cream together first three ingredients. Beat and add egg. Stir in milk. Sift together dry ingredients, then add. Chill 1 hour before cutting into shapes.

Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes.

Decorate. Devour.


1 cup Crisco
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
4 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
3-4 tbsp milk

Combine all ingredients. Add various food colorings. Decorate.

Now I usually triple or quadruple the recipe to have LOTS of extra :)
