Christmas Cut Out Cookies
Recipe type: dessert
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 C. Sour milk (1 C. milk minus 1 tsp. + 1 tsp. vinegar)
  • tsp. almond extract
  • 1 C. Shortening (Jean uses ½ C. margarine & ½ C. Crisco)
  • 2 C. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 4 tsp. Baking Powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 C. flour
  1. Works best if dough is set in the fridge overnight. Roll ¼” thick on floured surface, adding more flour as needed & cut out. Bake 7-9 min. @ 350º.
The less flour you can use without too much sticking, the better. Store in an airtight container with a slice of bread to keep soft/moist.
