How to Make Soft Christmas Sugar Cookies
- Beat together the shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla with mixer, then by hand mix in remaining ingredients. The dough will be fairly sticky.
- Generously flour board. Scoop out smaller portions of dough, pat out with your hand to 1/4"-1/2" thickness. Flour cookie cutter, cut and place on ungreased cookie sheet. (I use a round jelly glass to cut out the cookies). Sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake. Let cool a couple of minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
- NOTE: You can decorate with colored sugars or sprinkles or even place a nut or raisin in the center of the cookie before baking or frost after cooling.
