When my husband's Grandma Freeda passed away a few months ago, I was fortunate enough to inherit one of her cookbooks. It's a first edition of Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook. And like most cookbooks, she had several recipes tucked in between the pages--recipes cut out from newspapers and ones jotted down on paper. And the one she had written down for sugar cookies caught my eye.
Cream together butter, sugar and eggs. Stir in vanilla and milk. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and add to sugar mixture. Roll out dough and cut into shapes. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
