Ethyl's Frosted Sugar Cookies for Christmas!

We made these in 12 dozen batches during the Holiday season, they didn't last long!
A Facebook acquaintance was looking for a recipe for roll out sugar cookies you cut out and frost.
Here is my Mom's recipe from her ancient Cookbook, much stained and worn with use:
  • 3/4 cup shortning or butter
  • 1c Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1t salt
Thoroughly mix and refrigerate one hour, roll out thin and cut with cutters, place on ungreased sheet
bake at 400 for 6 to 8 minutes.

Frosting:
  • 3c powdered sugar
  • 1/3c margarine/shortening or butter
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla
  • about 2 T milk
Mix powdered sugar and margarine. Still in vanilla and milk, beating until frosting is smooth and spreading consistency.
