Glenn Beck appeared on the Jay Leno show last night. Beck gave his grandmother's recipe for sugar cookies, a favorite at Christmas time. I found the recipe at Glenn Beck's website. Here it is:
Grandma Janssens' Sugar Cookies
1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup sweet milk
2 level tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 level tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp butter flavoring
4 1/2 cups flour and a little more for rolling
Roll out 1/8 inch thick. Cut and bake. You can mix these and let stand in refrigerator several hours or even over night.
Then mix everything together, or at least everything but the flour, and then add the flour and bake at 350 degrees. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
