Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies are not very sweet. The sweetness comes from the icing. They are a modified version of my favorite childhood omni recipe. I submitted the recipe here because I know that if I submit it on VW it'll take forever to be posted.


Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

1 2/3 + 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup nut milk

In a bowl, sift together 1 2/3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, cream together shortening and vanilla before gradually adding the sugar. Stir in flour mixture and then alternatively stir in 1/3 cup flour and 1/3 cup milk.

Roll to about a 1/4-inch thickness, cut with a cookie cutter, and bake for 7 to 10 minutes.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.


When the frozen raspberries thaw they are mushy enough to easily incorporate into the frosting. Allow them to thaw completely before using.

1 cup confectioner’s (powdered) sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
2 tablespoons thawed frozen red raspberries

Mix all ingredients together. The consistency may be fine-tuned by adding more sugar or raspberries.
