This was my great-great grandmother's recipe. We make it every year and ice the cookies, rather than sugaring them!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream the sugar with the shortening. Stir in the egg, salt and lemon flavoring.
  3. Combine the milk and the evaporated milk. Dissolve the baking soda in the milks. Add this mixture to the creamed mixture and combine well. Stir in enough of the flour to make a stiff dough.
  4. You can either roll out the dough and cut with cookie cutters or roll the dough into balls and press flat with the bottom of a glass. If desired sprinkle the cookies with sugar before baking.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees CO for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are soft and lightly browned around the edges. Be careful not to overbake!

An excellent cookie [chilling the dough does allow for an even "shorter" cookie. Thanks for a great recipe Note; If you are using smaller or complex cookie cutters this cookie will not lose the shape!

This will be the sugar cookie recipe that I use from now on. You know the Loft House Cookies that you can buy in the grocery store, that is what these are like. They were soft and tasted great. My husband did not care for the lemon flavoring, said he would prefer an orange or vanilla. But it did not stop him from eating 10 before they were frosted. I made christmas cut outs and the recipe made 63 cookies. Awesome recipe, thanks for posting it.

This is a great recipe for cut out cookies. The dough is very easy to work with. Although I usually like a sugar cookie to taste more buttery, these are very tasty. I used almond extract instead of lemon- very good!
