Basic lard sugar cookies

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Lard
¾ cup Packed brown sugar
1 each Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Baking powder
2 cups Flour

Beat the lard, sugar and egg together until creamy and well blended.

Stir in the vanilla, and add the baking powder and flour until a dough is formed. (At this point, you could stir in some nuts and chocolate chips to make this into toll house dough) Form dough into balls about 1 inch in diameter, and place on a cookie sheet. (Leave plenty of room between the cookies, as they will spread considerably when baking). Flatten the balls slightly with your fingers to make a round cookie. (For sugar cookies, sprinkle the top with a bit of sugar.) Bake in a preheated 350 oven until the edges are nicely brown. Remove and let cool. Makes about 18 cookies Shared by: Kathy Pitts
