Muz's Drop Sugar Cookies
This is my first creation on this site and I couldn't think of a better recipe to share with everyone. First off, I'm a 22-year-old man and when I was in my teens, my great-grandmother, who I called Muz, would make sugar cookies all the time for me and my grandparents. They were phenomenal, as she had perfected it over the years. She passed at the young age of 95 in 2006 and left the recipe in one of her boxes. Now that I've been cooking, I found her recipe for her Drop Sugar Cookies last week and made them last night. They are awesome, but you'll learn that when you make them. Enjoy!
Have all ingredients at room temperature (except milk and egg, of course).
Muz's recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of milk, but after the first go-around the dough seemed a little dry. So, I added a third tablespoon of milk and it turned out really well. So I recommend 3 instead of 3.
I added another 1/2 teaspoon vanilla for more flavor, so do what you want with it.
Her recipe also called for just 1 cup of white sugar, but after following the recipe the first time, they just weren't as sweet as I remembered. So when I made them the second time, I added another 1/2 cup, which turned out perfectly. Again, do what you want.
