Soft Sugar Cookies


Soft sugar cookies with butter and egg yolks and vanilla and nutmeg.

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes


  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract ( I usually use all vanilla)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


Cream shortening and butter with sugar. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Pour milk into a large measuring cup; add extract(s) and baking soda. Into a separate bowl sift flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk mixture. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets then sprinkle with a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake for 12 to 13 minutes at 375°. Store sugar cookies in an airtight covered container.
