Grandma's Sugar Cookies

  • 2¼ c. flour
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ c. shortening
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 T. cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla or 1 T. orange juice
Sift the flour, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt together.
Cream the shortening and sugar; add eggs, cream, and vanilla.
Gradually add the flour, mixing well.
Chill the dough before baking.
Place on lightly greased pan and sprinkle with sugar before baking at 400° F. for 10-12 minutes.

(Makes 3 dozen crisp cookies)

Megan's Notes: I'm guessing these could either be rolled and cutout or scooped and pressed with a sugared glass.
