Vintage Cooky-Jar Sugar Cookies

  I found this recipe in a vintage 1953 edition Better Homes & Garden cook book and it by far is the best sugar cookie recipe I have ever tried and my go to for Christmas and cookie decorating like my daughters up coming school Valentine party and our #DisneySide at home celebration. These cookies taste better after they have cooled completely and even better the next day.

I generally make 3 - 4 batches of this very recipe in order to have plenty of cookies to fill the jar and give away.

2/3 cup shortening/butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tspn vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 tspn baking powder
1/4 tspn salt
4 tspns milk

Thoroughly cream shortening and sugar in large bowl. Add egg, beat until mixture is light and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients; stir into creamed mixture together with milk.
Divide dough in half. Chill 1 hour so it is easy to handle. Roll out one half on floured surface keeping other half chilled til ready. Cut with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheet. bake for 11 minutes at 350*
