One of the simplest sugar cookies ever! When baked, they are delicious and it's hard to keep them in the cookie jar for long...because everyone eats them too quickly.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
Mix sugar, shortening, egg, honey, and lemon extract.
Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.
Roll dough 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched. Cool and decorate.
