Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hope your Valentine’s Day is a happy, homemade, one!  Cookies in the photo were made from Mrs. C.E. Webber, Jr.’s  recipe in the Stuffed Cougar, page 261:

Stuffed Cougar Sugar Cookies                        The Stuffed Cougar 1981

 2/3 c. shortening                                   1 egg

¾ c. sugar                                            4 t. milk

1 t. vanilla                                             1 ½ t. baking powder

2 cups sifted flour                                 ¼ t. salt

Cream shortening, sugar, vanilla.  Add egg; beat until fluffy. Stir in milk. Sift dry ingredients and blend into creamy mixture.  Divide dough in half. Chill one hour. 

Roll to 1/8”. (Roll only half of dough at a time; keep remainder chilled.)  Cut into desired shapes and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake on greased cookie sheet at 375° for 6-8 minutes.  Cool slightly, remove from pan. Yield: 36.

Icing:  Melt teaspoon of butter. Add confectioner’s sugar and milk to desired consistency.  Frost cookies once cooled.
