School is right around the corner and whether you need to pack a school lunch or just have the cookie jar full when the kids hit the kitchen in the afternoon, this is the perfect cookie. Super simple and very flavorful, this recipe is a keeper.


3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1  1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt together. Cut in the butter flavored Crisco (like you would a pie crust).

Add the eggs, , milk and extracts and beat until smooth. This will be very thick, so a stand mixer works best.

Roll into three log shapes (about 2" in diameter) and chill for at least an hour or overnight. Slice into 1/3" disks and roll the disks in sugar.

Place on lightly greased baking sheet (about 2" apart) and bake in pre-heated 375° oven for 9-11 minute. My electric oven takes 10 minutes exactly. Cool on a baking rack.

ENJOY !!! 
NOTE: I know there will be questions/comments about butter flavored Crisco vs. butter. I have not tried this recipe with butter.
