1 cup shortening (or half butter, half shortening)
2 eggs beaten with 1 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons milk
1 scant teaspoon baking soda

This was originally my grandmother Grandma Dorothy Scheaffer’s cookie recipe. It is also known as Aunt Dea’s sugar cookies. She used to make the cookies with lard. They were a special treat made when we visited our cousins in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
BEST WISHES FOR A VERY
HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!
