roll Ott sugar cookies...errr....I mean... roll out sugar cookies

One of the many things I love about my red kitchen is that it is ideal for baking Christmas cookies in.  I can spread out all over my counter tops and have several batches going at once.  Like these roll out sugar cookies which were from a recipe that my great grandma had.  As you will see from the recipe below it's written in an "old school" format and calls for lard and sour cream which I find a little unique as you don't see that in too many recipes now a days.  I cut out these cute reindeer cookies and decorated the face and antlers.

Roll Out Sugar Cookie recipe:
Cream together 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oleo or lard, 1 pinch salt, 2 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 tsp. baking soda dissolved in the sour cream.  Add 1 or 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla.  Mix well and add 3 cups flour that has 1 tsp. baking powder sifted in it.  Add enough extra flour until dough will roll well.  Roll out and cut with cookie cutters.  Place on ungreased baking pans.  Bake at 350 about 12 minutes.

These look so easy and sweet! They'd be a nice addition to a cookie tray.

Your Sugar Cookie recipe looks really good. The ole Grandma's made the best cookies. Do you still have a lot of snow? I still have some Turnips and Swiss Chard in the garden. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week!

cute reindeers. Did you have a cookie cutter for that or did you ad lib? Very cute. I envy anyone that has the patience for sugar cookies - rolling, cutting and then decorating... ugh. Give me the drop and bake any time :) Not that I don't like sugar cookies.. just not all the work

My great grandma's sugar cookies were all Crisco, but I decided to use butter instead and it came out wonderfully! :) Love those old recipes!!
