Thread: Lost sugar cookie recipe -- pressed with glass

    Lost sugar cookie recipe -- pressed with glass

    I used to have a sugar cookie recipe where you rolled the cookies into balls, dipped a glass into colored sprinkles and then flattened the cookie with the glass. I THOUGHT it came from the old Betty Crocker Cookie Book, but I bought it and it wasn't there.

    I wanted to add a plain ole sugar cookie into my assortment.

    DH and I adore the Sawdust Cookies that were on the BB a few months ago. You can find them in a search. Recipe makes a ton, and they're easy!

    Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies

    1/2 c. shortening
    1 c. sugar
    1 egg (or 2 yolks)
    1 Tbsp. milk
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1-1/2 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. salt
    more sugar (or colored sugar)

    Cream shortening and sugar. Add egg, milk and vanilla and mix well. Stir in flour baking powder and salt and mix to form a dough. Cover and chill 3-4 hours until firm. Roll into 3/4" balls. Place 2" apart on greased pans. Flatten lightly with a glass dipped in sugar. (Butter the bottom of the glass before dipping in the sugar!) Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees or until cookies are light brown around the edges. Makes 3 dozen.
