Ella Zeek's Sugar Cookies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Holiday, Cookies

 Ingredients List

  • 3 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 c Brown sugar
  • 1/2 c White sugar
  • 1 c Shortening
  • 1/4 c Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Vanilla


Cream sugars and shortening. Add milk, vanilla and eggs and mix well. Stir
in remaining ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
With floured hands roll teaspoonful of dough into a ball. Place on cookie
sheet. With three fingres together, press ball flat, leaving ridges down
the middle. Bake in 400øF oven for 9 to 12 minutes or until lightly gold.

Ella was a neighbor who was ten years older than God when I was a child.
She always had these in her cookie jar, and usually would bake a dozen
every day since the dough keeps so well. It is one of my all time favorites
and I have never tasted them anywhere else.
