Old Fashioned Cookies
December 10, 2016

Just like Grandma's lost sugar cookie recipe that I've searched for years to find. These cookies are perfect with a cup a coffee, tea or hot cocoa. They are not overly sweet. The texture is puffy but firm. I tried this recipe with no changes but found the dough a little sticky to roll and added bout 1 cup more flour. They were great. Next batch I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and chilled dough before rolling. Wow! Just like grandma's. Yields approximately 3 dozen cookies with an average 3" cookie cutter. Of course this will vary depending on cutter size. I've tried these with and without sprinkling sugar on top before baking and enjoy them both. For a sweeter holiday décor try cookie icing on the tops after cooling. This one is a pleaser of children and adults and you will find the cookie jar empty in no time at all.
