How to Make Mom's Sugar Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Cream butter and shortening thoroughly. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and blend thoroughly. Drop teaspoon onto cooking sheet with parchment paper.Sprinkle with colored sugar and Bake on 375 for 7-9 minutes. I like mine soft so I do them for about 7 minutes.
