Sugar Cake Cookies were something my Great Grandmother use to make for us kids, growing up in Indiana. As with most folks born prior to 1900, they cooked with good ole shortening, real butter and natural ingredients. Food tasted better too.
I had longed to enjoy the tastes of childhood memories, but had lost the recipe of this favorite sugar cookie. By chance I was browsing the cookie recipes here and found this Amish Sugar Cake recipe. Turns out, this was almost exactly her old recipe. Almost, being she use plain ole Crisco shortening. This was before flavored shortenings. She lived to be 103.
This recipe was AWESOME. I used parchment paper rather than greasing the baking sheet and extended the cooking time to 15 min, because the cookies are larger. I also sprinkled them with Natural Turbinado Sugar. Be prepared to make 2 batches, because they go fast.
