Simple Sugar Cookies

I have a box of recipes that I may have mentioned before. All the recipes come from my grandparents or great grandparents' kitchens. Most I had eaten at various times in my childhood and bring back special memories, and there are some that I haven't tried before. It's my goal to make them all at least once.
I don't remember eating these sugar cookies from "Momaw's" kitchen, but when I saw the recipe I knew I had to make them. I love cookies, and most of the time I love baking them too. One thing I hate though: the rolling pin! I hate rolling things out, and most sugar cookie recipes require you to do so. Not this one! That is when I knew this recipe was for me.

2-1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
1 egg
1/2 c shortening (this is how you know it's an old recipe)
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbl milk
  • All ingredients should be room temperature.
  • Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream together butter, shortening, sugar, and vanilla. Add egg. Mix till fluffy. Stir in dry ingredients until smooth. Blend in milk. 
  • Drop by teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheet.
  • Flatten with bottom of glass which has been dipped in sugar.
  • Bake at 375* for 10-12 minutes. 
  • Cool. Makes 5-5-1/2 dozen 2" cookies


  1. My kids love sugar cookies but I don't often make them. They would LOVE it if I did! Thanks!

  2. These are super fast since you don't have to roll them...and they taste delicious! My husband was so excited when he smelled them as he walked in the door.

  3. i never made these before! might do with the little ones this week!

    thanks for sharing!!
