Who doesn’t love a wonderful sugar cookie? I am truthfully not really a sugar cookie person, but let me tell you….this sugar cookie recipe is amazing. I always make them fairly thick and they seem to stay soft and good at all times!  I made these last week for Valentine’s Day (about 70+ hearts) and not a single one was wasted.

  • 1 Cup Shortening

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 1/2 Cups Flour
