This is just the recipe I was looking for! I was able to get the baker's amonia at a local pharmacy, but you can also get it from the King Arthur Baking Company.
My dough was too sticky for rolling into balls so I used two soup spoons and dropped the dough onto the cookie sheet - then used the glass dipped in sugar to flatten. I had substituted 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup crisco instead of lard...the butter probably caused the stickiness.
I also made a light lemon frosting and my family LOVES THEM! Next time I will try all crisco and see if they are less sticky. You could easily cut this recipe in half and still have plenty of cookies.
