This morning before leaving for school, I mixed up a batch of roll out cookies so they could chill all day in the fridge.
After school, I quickly got to work and rolled out pumpkins. We have a High School Cross Country Awards Banquet tonight and it's always "Bring a dessert".
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.
We are celebrating "your lucky day" at our house today. 5 years ago today we adopted a little orange kitty who has turned into one fat, lazy orange baby.
Happy Lucky Day, Frito!
Hope you are all having a good week. ~Ann
