HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

I just wanted to post my favorite sugar cookie recipe since it is Valentine's Day. I love making sugar cookies for Valentine's Day.

Soft Sugar Cookies
1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda

Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Add milk and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add to other mixture. Refrigerate dough at least 2 hours. Roll dough about 1/2 inch thick and cut with desired cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees. Let cool and decorate. For perfect sugar cookies, I love using Silpat mats over my cookie sheets.
