Sugar Cookies

We made these last night and they were delicious, as usual! I love mom's recipe. I think the trick is rolling them out nice and thick. Who wants a flat and crispy sugar cookie? These are so soft and thick and great tasting. For frosting, I just used a butter cream frosting. I started with 1/4 c. softened butter and added milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar until I got the consistency I wanted. Yum!


1 1/3 C shortening
1 1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
1 T orange peel, finely grated
1 t vanilla
8 t milk
4 C flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

Cream shortening, sugar, orange peel, and vanilla. Add eggs and milk and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness on floured surface. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.
