Lydia's Sugar Cookie Recipe
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter or margarine
1/2 cups shortening
2 3/4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
colored sugar* or candy sprinkles
Heat oven to 400.
Stir sugar, margarine, shortening and eggs in large bowl until mixed.
Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Roll balls in colored sugar or candies until coated.
Put about two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. ( make sure you put them two inches apart, or they'll stick together!!)
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden and cracked on the top. Right away, take cookies off cookie sheet. Makes about 6 dozen cookies...
MMMMMMMM Dee-wishes! They are REALLY good with milk! ;) I put sprinkles on my cookies.
They are actually called, Rainbow Sprinklers!
