It's Cookie Time!

We have been trying to find a time to decorate cookies with our friends Stella and Sydney all month!  Everyone was finally healthy and schedules finally permitted so we squeezed it in before ringing in the new year!
Stella, Cilla and Amelia had a fun time together.  All three girls are within 6 months of age, so they were a silly little group!
Cilla, apparently spitting something out of her mouth.  Real nice!  She loved putting sprinkles on the cookies....a little too much!
Amelia and Sarah.
Our smorgasbord of cookies!!!
I have to share this recipe because it is literally the best sugar cookie recipe I have ever tasted!

 Sugar Cookies
1 cup Shortening
2 cup Sugar
3 Eggs
Cream these ingredients together.

1/4 cup Milk
1/2 tsp white Vinegar
2 Tbsp Vanilla
2 Tbsp maple syrup
Mix these ingredients together and add this to mixture.

4 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Combine these ingredients and add to wet ingredient mixture above.

Chill dough. I usually make the dough at night and chill it over night. Roll out and flatten dough on a floured surface.  Bake at 375 degrees until brown.  About 8-10 minutes.

Thanks for having us Syd!  We enjoyed cookies for several days!  It was kind of you to open up your home to icing covered little fingers and to sprinkle shake'in crazies!  It was a blast!
