Gramma Ev’s Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

February 11, 2020
Yields1 Serving
 1 cup sugar
 3 cups Unbleached flour
 1 ½ tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp salt
 1 cup soft butter (Not unsalted)
 1 slightly beaten egg
 3 tbsp evaporated milk
 1 tsp vanilla
Vanilla Icing
 2 tbsp butter ( not unsalted)
 ½ tsp vanilla extract
 2 tbsp half and half or whipping cream (I prefer whipping cream)
 a generous dash of salt
1

Mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, in a large bowl and salt and set it aside. In another bowl.

2

Cut in the softened butter with a pastry cutter until it resembles fine crumbs.

3

Mix together the evaporated milk, egg, and vanilla and add it to the butter and flour mixture. Mix it together with your hands until it forms a smooth ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and chill it for an hour. (I've baked them without chilling them and they always turn out fine, but I've also let them chill overnight and they turn out fine too, they're just harder to roll out, but soften up as you roll them.)

4

Lightly flour a surface and cut a chunk of the dough off. Working it with your hands flatten it out on the floured surface, then roll it with a rolling pin until it's about an eighth of an inch thick. I like them a little thicker, but It's up to you.

Then bake them at 400 degrees for six minutes. Remove them from the pan and place them on a sheet of aluminum foil to cool. This makes a fair number of cookies, I'm going to say around 3 dozen at least, so be ready to do some icing.

Melt the butter then add the confectioners sugar, the vanilla and the half and half or whipping cream. Whisk with a whisk until smooth. Add salt to taste. Then ice the cookies
