I've always considered myself to be a pretty good baker. But lately I've decided I want everyone else to know that too. Like "oh yeah...Stephanie makes such good desserts!". I want to perfect the recipes I always make, and branch out and try new ones too.
If I'm at all known for any kind of treat, it would definitely be these sugar cookies. They're my aunt's recipe, and I can't tell you how many times I've given it out.
1 cup shortening (7/8 c. veg. oil)
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
5-6 (ish) cups flour (just keep adding until it's easy to roll out)
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
Mix shortening, eggs, sugar and vanilla for 2 min. Add sour cream, flour, soda, and salt. Blend together. Roll out on floured board 1/4" thick. Cut into shapes. Bake at 425 for 5-6 minutes.
2 drops lemon juice
