Grandma Rosemary’s Sugar Cookies



I thought I would do something a little different than what I usually do and share one of my favorite recipe’s with you.  Grandma Rosemary was actually my great grandma who I sadly never got to meet, but I heard she was a great lady!

Here’s the recipe!

1/2 C butter (not margarine)

1/2 C lard/ shortening

1 t. vanilla

2 C flour

1 1/2 C sugar

3 egg yolks

1 t. soda

1 t. cream of tartar


Sift flour, tartar and soda.  Cream butter, lard and add sugar, vanilla and egg yolks.  Add dry ingredients.  Make into balls with teaspoon.  (Will crack on top) Bake 12-15 minutes at 325 degrees.  

And I think that’s all!  Let me know if you try it out!
