Vintage sugar cookies recipe


2 cups sifted flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup Mazola Corn Oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg plus milk to make 1/3 cup


Sift flour, baking powder and salt into bowl. Add Mazola; blend well with fork or pastry blender. (Mixture will appear dry.) Beat sugar, vanilla and egg-milk mixture together until very light and fluffy. Stir into flour mixture. Chill about 1 hour. Roll out on a floured board or cloth. Cut as desired.

Before baking, place nuts on cookies or sprinkle with colored sugar. For other cookies, arrange candied cherries on a circle of dough; fold over dough to meet center and press to seal. Bake in a 400 F (hot) oven about 9 minutes.

Makes about 3 dozen
