Brown Sugar Cookies...

Once upon a time... there was this really nice lady and she brought some cookies to work to share with her co-workers.  AND THEY LOVED THEM.  So I begged for the recipe to make some of my own.  AND THEY LOVED THEM. {the end}

These are seriously so delicious, internet... if only you really knew!

You will need:
1 cup shortening
2 cups light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp water
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 can of Dunken Hines Vanilla Whipped Icing (or your favorite icing)

For the details...

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream the shortening and sugar in your mixer {so thankful for my Misty the Mixer}

2. Add eggs, water, and vanilla and mix until blended



3. Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and sift the dry ingredients into the mixer and be sure to mix well.  I typically put 1/2 of the dry ingredients in and mix that together... then add the 2nd 1/2 and finish mixing - so that I know it all gets blended well.  This is especially helpful when doubling the recipe above {like I did for this demo}


4. Bake 8-10 minutes

5. Let the cookies cool, then ice them and enjoy!!  I added red to the icing to get in the Christmas spirit!


Let me know if you try them... they are super yummy!!!!
