Grandma Ade's Soft Sugar cookies
By Becky Burgess BBBakes
This is a very old recipe dating back to the 1800's. My grandmother, aunts and my mother made these every year for Christmas to decorate with frosting and again for Valentine's Day. Now my sister and I and even my younger brother make them for our families. My father loved these cookies plain with 2 teaspoons of caraway seeds added to the recipe. They were one of the last things I made for him before he died. I love and miss you very much, Daddy.

when you say sour milk do you mean buttermilk?

Sorry for leaving out the amount of shortening! It takes 1 cup. I corrected the recipe.
also, to sour milk my grandmother always used whole milk and added a tablespoon of vinegar to it. buttermilk would work just fine though, as would adding a tablespoon of lemon juice to the milk.
