Old Fashioned sugar cookie

By Sunny FM

2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 ts nutmeg (optional)


In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar, egg and lemon extract.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Chill 1 – 2 hours so it will be easy to handle.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake 7 to 8 minutes at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to racks immediately to cool
