Modified Granny's Sugar Cookie Recipe

This is a fast and easy recipe, the last version of this recipe didn’t publish all the way so here are the last of the directions added to it.


  • Cream together:
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • Blend in:

  • 1 med. whole egg or 2 sm. egg yolks
  • Sift together and and add to mixture:

  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 2tsp. baking powder
  • 2 c. flour, sifted


  1. Blend into mixture 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Roll until about 1\2 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters and bake 350 degree preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Do not let them get brown for soft chewy cookies. For extra sparkle and color, glaze your cookies using 3/4 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar and 3-4 teaspoons water. Blend together, not to get real thick or thin. Brush on using pastry brush while cookie is warm.

The beginning of this recipe is nowhere to be found...I even did a search of the name, and only this "end" part comes up...


Oh, sorry, it is the whole thing...! Now I feel compelled to bake them, so I can leave a real vote, lol!
