These are the sugar cookies Granny Valle always made us. They taste DIVINE with the nutmeg and lemon rind. She rarely used any icing to top them, but we delighted in making faces on them with raisins, almond pieces, or other nuts, and/or using sprinkles or colored sugar to decorate them BEFORE baking. These are loaded with sugar and fat so go easy on em! PS I don't know where she got the recipe.

Recipe Ingredients for Granny Valle's Sugar Cookies

1/2 c shortening
1 c Splenda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
2 eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Recipe Directions for Granny Valle's Sugar Cookies

  1. Grease baking sheet slightly (you can use Pam or other spray).

  2. Cream shortening, sugar, salt, nutmet, grated lemon rind, eggs and milk until smooth.

  3. Turn oven to 375 degrees (F) to preheat.

  4. Add flour, soda and powder. Sift together and add. Stir until well blended.

  5. Drop by heaping teaspoons on greased baking sheet (Pam is ok); flatten by putting a CLEAN damp cloth over the end of a glass. It's sticky - you'll have to wet the cloth a few times.

  7. Bake in moderate oven 350-375 degrees (F) for 10-12 minutes, until they begin to turn golden.

  8. Cool on rack.

  9. *this recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled for fun and easy gift-giving at Christmas or other holidays.
