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!

Baking for a family get-together so I'm using flour and sugar and WHAT A DIFFERENCE.  Oh I miss good old flour and sugar cookies.  I'm so used to baking with almond flour and natural sugars that I'd forgotten what flour smells like.  Yes... smells like.  I'd forgotten what normal, wheat flour based cookies smelled like.  Ha ha.

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.
