1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons lemon peel, grated
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

sugar for dipping

Sparkling Sugar Cookies Recipe Directions

Preheat your oven to 400 °F.

In a large mixing bowl cream together the shortening and sugar until fluffy, add in the eggs and beat well.
Slowly stir in the milk and add the flour, lemon peel, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix until well blended.
Drop dough by teaspoons onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Spray the bottom of a glass with vegetable spray and dip into the dipping sugar and then press down on cookie (dipping sugar could be colored for each holiday).
Bake sparkling sugar cookies until lightly brown (about 8 to 10 minutes).

Sparkling Sugar Cookie Recipe Yields: about 5 dozen.

** Another way to keep sugar on cookies, before baking, brush with beaten egg. Then put sugar onto the moist cookies and bake. The sugar will stay on the cookies. You can use different colors of sugar on each cookie without any problem.

**Here’s another easy way to add sparkle to sugar cookies:
As sparkling sugar cookies come from the oven, brush lightly with corn syrup and sprinkle with your favorite flavor of gelatin right from the box.

Deerlake Cookies to Share Coffee Cup

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
