Mom's Sugar Cookies
Rating (0 Rated)
Judy Mayer, Outpost's store nutritionist, made these delicious cookies with her mom, Mary Poppy, back when she was a little girl and continues the tradition today with her children and grandchildren. The secret to these perfectly crisped cookies is the powdered sugar. This recipe is easy to make if using a food processor. All ingredients can be added at once and processed until well blended. Once chilled, this batter will keep for one week in the refrigerator. The dough is very forgiving and will not get stiff if repeatedly rolled out.
