From Yesterday's Instagram: The best SUGAR COOKIE - simple, classic and traditional



Such a classic and simple traditional sugar cookie, but one of the best!

These are... heavenly.  I did have one yesterday (vanilla sugar cookies are my favorite cookie ever).  It was 15 carbs and 8 sugars but worth every last one.  After the cookies were cooled I packed them up and put them in the deep freezer for next weekend.  I really did only have one! 


1 c Crisco
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t good quality vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

Line baking sheet with parchment.  Beat shortening and sugar 2+ minutes until smooth.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat again and then add the dry ingredients.  Drop cookies 2 inches apart and bake at 375 for  9-11 minutes.  Let cool 2 minutes and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
