Keyword: old fashioned suar cookie
- 2 eggs well beaten
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 ts nutmeg (optional)
In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Chill 1 – 2 hours so it will be easy to handle.
Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake 7 to 8 minutes at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to racks immediately to cool.
