We are giving up sweets for Lent here, but I made these last week just to get our pre-Lenten fix.
Here is our favorite recipe:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup corn oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
4 cups flour
Cream together first six ingredients and gradually add the flour, tartar and soda.
Refrigerate for an hour until firm.
Roll out onto floured surface and punch out with cookie cutters. (We like thick ones!)
Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes (watch carefully for the right timing-just lightly browned on edges) on greased cookie sheets.
For the frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
6 TBS butter
1 TBS vanilla extract
2 TBS milk
Adjust for thickness, adding a little more milk if necessary.
