Best Sugar Cookie Recipe

This is my favorite sugar cookie recipe and it's great for using those cookie cutters and making adorable holiday shapes.

1 cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup sour milk.  If you don't have sour milk around, use regular and put 1 tsp. vinegar in it)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Mix Crisco, sugar and eggs.  Beat til creamy.  Add baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, lemon, salt and nutmeg.  Beat til creamy.  Stir in flour and milk alternately.  Beat until smooth.  Chill for at least one hour.

Roll out and cut with cookie cutters or a glass turned upside down.  Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake 10 - 12 minutes at 350.

Enjoy!  This recipe is from my mom.
