Old Fashioned Jumbo Sugar Cookies



Makes about twenty-four cookies.

ready in: 30-60 minutes.

ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine at room temp.
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 cup vegetable shortening such as Crisco
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1 small pinch salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup sugar for dipping cookies

directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and shortening. Mix in sugar and salt.
Blend in eggs and extracts. In another bowl, mix flour with soda and cream
of tartar. Fold flour mixture into butter mixture and mix very well. Roll
dough into balls about the size of golf balls.

Dip tops into sugar and place on baking sheet. Press down very slightly for
crisper cookies. For thick soft-center cookies, do not press at all. Bake
12-16 minutes approximately.

You can substitute 2 tsp. baking powder for the cream of tartar AND baking
soda. Enjoy.
