Grandma’s Sugar Cookies


½ c. shortening

½ c. margarine

1 c. sugar

2 eggs

1 ½ t. vanilla

3 t. baking powder

½ t. salt

2 ½ c. flour


Cream shortening and margarine.  Add sugar to the shortening mixture and beat until fluffy. 

Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat in baking powder, salt, and flour. 

On wax paper, roll “logs” about 1 ½  inches in diameter and 6 inches long.  Chill. 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the cookie dough into ¾ inch thick slices. 

Place slices on a greased cookie sheet.  Dip a fork in cold water and press down on each cookie. 

Sprinkle each cookie with sugar.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.


The cookies can also be made without refrigerating them. 

Simply drop spoonfuls of dough on a greased cookie sheet. 

Dip a fork into cold water, and press the fork onto each cookie.  Then sprinkle with sugar.
