Trish's Sugar Cookies



I have been enjoying snagging great new recipes to try from other blogs recently. It seems like a nice thing to do during this season of friendship and goodwill. The following recipe makes THE BEST sugar cookies ever. The master baker, Trish Branstetter, gave it to me.

Makes 8-10 dozen
Bake at 350 F (176 C) for 8-10 minutes

1 C Powdered sugar
1 C Granulated sugar
1 C Butter
1 C Shortening (or you can just use 2 C of butter)

Cream all of the above together.

ADD
pinch of salt
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla

WHISK
1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 tablespoon baking soda
4.5 C flour

Add slowly to the sugar mixture. Form into balls. I use a cookie scoop. Roll the balls in granulated sugar. Flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
