Grammie Easter's Sugar Cookies

Submitted by Joyce White, Hampshire

These are cookies I have made over the years for all season. The children took lots of these to school, and my mom made them for us when we were in school.

1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
6 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup sweet milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream the shortening and sugar, mix in eggs and vanilla.

Add milk and dry ingredients, alternately. Roll to 1/8 inch thick, cut into holiday shapes and bake at 325 F for 10 minutes.

Ice in holiday colors. These can also be double cookies using filling such as jam or cooked raisins.
