- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup shortening
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup or less milk (we used Silk and it turned out well)
Mix all dry ingredients, cut in shortening. Next, add eggs and vanilla. Mix. If it’s too crumbly, add a little milk at a time until you get the cookie dough consistency. Drop onto cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees until lightly brown on the edges, I think mine took around 5 minutes or so. Enjoy!
