Sugar Cookies!

I have been waiting for over a year to have a really good reason to make these cookies.  I got the recipe from my domestic goddess cousin Lindi, who got it from her good friend Debbie, and Debbie sold her soul I'm sure to come up with this recipe.  It is amazing what a little bit of lemon extract can do to a cookie.  These are delish, and delightful.  I served them at an 8-11 year old Achievement Day Talent show, and James took the rest to Bishop's Training.  I think they called him to be a bishop because they needed a baker in their midst to provide refreshment :)  Here is the recipe, and sorry Lindi it isn't a new one for you, but thanks again for it.  It is my favorite!!

Debbie to Lindi to Lisa Sugar Cookies

2 c. Crisco

4 eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 t. lemon extract
Cream together

8 c. flour
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
12 T. milk
Mix together until smooth.  Roll out with a rolling pin and use cookie cutters.  Bake in a 375'F oven for 8-10 mins.  (I actually baked for 7 mins.)  Cool and frost.

2 lbs. powdered sugar
3 t. vanilla
milk to thin


  1. Lisa those look way better than mine-yum!
    Good job :) Marek is sitting here on my lap looking at those cookies saying more, more..which means he would like some NOW- I guess I will have to go and make some myself-you really can't beat them. Hope you all are doing well. I giggled about the derby post. Love, Lindi

  2. Those sound delish! I have mixed emotions about you sharing the recipe though... It means that if I want some, I can't just beg you for them, it means that I have to get off my own bum and make them... sigh! Really though, thanks for sharing. Love ya!

  3. We are planning on making these for Vday and we are *all* looking forward to stuffing our faces!

    I would say this recipe makes the perfect amount too.

  4. Hi Lisa this is Debbie. I am so glad that you love these cookies as much as I do. They are the BEST! I am wondering when lindi and I get to come up and have cooking school. I'm sure we would have so much fun and lots of recipes to share.

  5. I think we should call these "Debbie to Lindi to Lisa to Emmi Sugar Cookies!" I am going to try them! However, I am not sure how they will turn out baking in my 1800's Dutch oven that we have!

  6. Hey guys! I was just blog stalking and happened to come across yours. Hope you are all doing well!

  7. Hey Lisa! This is Melanie (Mower)! How are you doing? I am so glad that I found your blog! It is so fun to see what you and your family have been up to! It looks like you are still making lots of yummy things at your house! You are so talented! I LOVE your family picture and the bottom of you page! It was CRAZY to see all of you kids! They are so big! You have a beautiful family, and you all look very happy! Keep in touch!

  8. Oh lisa-
    I'm totally in love with your blog....oh my heck! You are the most amazing cook ever! I've just been sitting here drooling over every post for the past 30 min! Ahhh everything looks sooo sooo delish! I'm excited to give some of them a try. I'm glad you tried that seafood stew...i've been wondering about that one for a while. Looks so warm and cozy. Perfect for a day like today. I seriously wished we lived closer so you could be my cooking coach!
    Hope you guys had a blast on your trip I can't wait to hear all about it and see all the beautiful pictures. Love ya!
