Sugar Cookies

This recipe comes from the family cookbook of Julie Lugo Cerra. We made them for teacher appreciation day at Hannah's preschool and were very well received!

Cream together:

1/2 c butter or shortening
1/2 c other shortening (oil or solid)
1/2 tsp salt
1 c sugar
1 egg


2 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp lemon or almond extract

After well mixed, drop by the teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets. Dip the bottom of a glass in granulated sugar, press cookie, dip in sugar again and repeat for each cookie.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
