MY MOM'S SUGAR COOKIES = THE BEST SUGAR COOKIES EVER!!!

So I'm going to let you in on a family recipe! They are my mom's sugar cookies and they are seriously the best!!! The dough is homemade and so is the icing and they are so good.

RECIPE

-1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
-1 Cup Crisco
-4 to 4 1/2 Cups Flour
-1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
-1 Cup Buttermilk With 1 Teaspoon Soda Dissolved
-2 Eggs
-4 Teaspoons Baking Powder
-1/2 Teaspoon Salt



Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Mix Crisco and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix together. Add dry mixture, alternate with the buttermilk and soda. Chill overnight (or at least several hours)


Roll out to about 3/8 inch thick, use a little flour to roll them in. Cut out cookies. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Ice the cookies when they are almost cool.

ICING

-4 Cups Confectioners Sugar
-1 Teaspoon Vanilla
-2 to 3 Tablespoons Butter
-About 4 Tablespoons of Milk
-Dash of Salt


Beat with a mixer. If it is too thick add a little more milk, if too thin add more confectioners sugar. Add food coloring if desired and put on cooled cookies.
