Sugar Cookies

Makes about 8 dozen

These cookies are not the plain, boring, flavorless sugar cookie you find in the store; these are soft and delicious, with just a hint of spice. Try them plain, decorate them with frosting, or just top them with a sprinkling of brown sugar before you bake them.

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups shortening
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons salt
3 eggs
2 cups sour milk or buttermilk
2 teaspoons baking soda
5 – 7 cups flour

Directions
In large bowl, cream together sugar and shortening. Stir in salt and nutmeg and mix well. Then add eggs, milk and baking soda, and slowly add in about 5 cups of flour to thicken.

Roll out dough, cut into shapes, and bake in 400 F oven for 8 – 10 minutes, or until edges are pale golden brown.
