Sugar cookies, chocolate frosting, candy corns, mini chocolate chips, and mini red M&M’s … simple, cute, and perfect for a little treat for a school celebration!


2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening (Crisco)
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
3 cups flour

Cream sugar and shortening; beat in eggs; add milk and vanilla.

Mix baking powder, soda and salt into 1 cup flour.  Add to sugar/shortening/milk mixture, mix well.  Add remaining flour and mix well (dough may be very stiff)

Chill dough thoroughly. (5 minutes in the freezer if you are in a pinch)

Roll 1/4” thick on well-floured board (or between 2 pieces of waxed paper), and cut with your favorite cookie cutters.  For practically round cookies, use a cookie scoop to dollop dough onto a cookie sheet 2-3 inches apart. Smash balls down with the bottom of a glass and reshape if necessary with fingers.

Place on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375°F until edges start to turn golden brown… about 8-10 minutes.  Remove promptly from baking sheet.
