My all time favorite roll out cookies -2 C sugar
1 C white Crisco
1 C Milk & 1T white vinegar or 1 C buttermilk
2 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
5-6 C flour
1 t salt
4 t almond extract
Beat sugar and Crisco, add eggs and soured milk. Mix well then add baking soda, baking powder, salt and extract. Add 1 cup of flour at a time, mixing well. Chill for 1-2 hours. Roll out to 1/4" thick, cut with favorite cookie cutter. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Do not let the edges brown, you want them to be soft to the touch.
Frosting - 1/2 stick butter melted, 4 cups powdered sugar, 1/8 t almond extract and drizzle of milk until desired consistency.
When I used to make these BK (before kids) I would put them in the freezer and we'd enjoy them for weeks. Now not a one makes it to the freezer!
Happy Valentines Day.
