Ev's Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies changed my life. They're soft and PERFECT and so stinkin' delicious. If you're looking for a super-sweet sugar cookie, this isn't it...It's sweet ENOUGH, but it's subtle at the same time. MMMMM.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place rack in the center of the oven.

1. Beat until fluffy:
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup. sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
1 t. salt

2. Stir in 3/4 cup milk with a spoon.

3. Add:
4 cups flour sifted with 4 t. baking powder

4. Mix together evenly; roll dough out to 1/3" thickness.

Bake for 7-10 minutes. Don't let the edges get brown...take them out before you think you need to--that's the trick for getting a soft cookie.

Frost or don't...they're fine plain favorite is with your favorite cream cheese frosting.

Just when I think about quitting sugar again, you go and post all of these yummy-sounding recipes. I might have push that back a week or two.
