Ella Zeek's Sugar Cookies

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 48
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

3  cups  All-purpose flour
1 1/2  cups  Brown sugar
1/2  cup  White sugar
1  cup  Shortening
1/4  cup  Milk
2    Eggs
2  teaspoons  Baking powder
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
1  teaspoon  Vanilla

Cream sugars and shortening. Add milk, vanilla and eggs and mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. With floured hands roll teaspoonful of dough into a ball. Place on cookie sheet. With three fingres together, press ball flat, leaving ridges down the middle. Bake in 400F oven for 9 to 12 minutes or until lightly gold. Ella was a neighbor who was ten years older than God when I was a child. She always had these in her cookie jar, and usually would bake a dozen every day since the dough keeps so well. It is one of my all time favorites and I have never tasted them anywhere else.
