Growing up this is the recipe that my mom used. It comes from a cookbook where the pages are falling out and there lot of splatters on the pages. That, my friends, is how you can tell a well loved recipe!
Sift the following:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Cut in 1 cup softened butter until crumbly.
Beat 1 egg, add 3 tbs evaporated milk and 1 tsp vanilla
Mix to form dough. Chill slightly and then roll out dough. You can sprinkle with sugar or bake plain for frosting. Bake at 400* for 8-10 minutes.
Ginger and Snowmen will be joining Megan at school tomorrow for another bake sale.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
