How to Make Jo's Sugar Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375*F Makes 2 Dozen - Set a side a small bowl of sugar and nutmeg mixture or roll chill for an hour and roll out for cutting.
    If not rolling out you will need a small glass jar and shortening to smear lightly on the bottom, so you can dip into sugar nutmeg mixture and press down on the cookies.
  2. In mixing bowl, cream together shortening and sugar, add beaten egg and cream, add vanilla, nutmeg, and orange peel, cream. Add flour, baking powder, salt mix with beater or hands, adding milk a little at a time. I prefer my hands because I can tell the consistency easier.
