Old Fashion Sugar Cookies


Today we made some old fashion sugar cookies and decorated them with a basic buttercream icing. Since the Broncos are playing tonight, we decided Bronco decorations were only fitting! This is a great sugar cookie recipe given to me by my husband’s sweet Aunt Lauri!  It is great for rolling out and using cookie cutters…


2 and 3/4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 c shortening (Crisco)

1/4 c butter

1 c sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla


  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Using your mixer, cream the shortening, butter, and sugar.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time and then add the vanilla.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture and mix well.
  • You can chill the dough (or not)!
  • Roll dough out onto floured surface and use cookie cutters of desired shape.
  • Bake cookies at 400 for 10 to 12 minutes.
