Shiela's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I chose this recipe for 2 reasons. 1) the use of both shortening and butter along with both white and confectioners sugar was intriguing. 2) the name of the recipe was my name too! I REALLY liked these sugar cookies. I made them with vanilla instead of lemon juice because I wasn't looking for a lemon flavor for Christmas cookies. They were very yummy, even without icing. Or should I say, especially without icing. I found them to be a dense cookie instead of what folks might call light, which I really liked. They had a good crunch and wonderful flavor. When baked, they held the cookie shape very well. I made the dough early to fit my schedule and put it in the fridge for several hours only because I wasn't ready to cut and cook when I prepared the dough. I found that it took warming the dough by simply playing with it a little bit before I could easily roll it for cutting. I will make these again and again and for no special occasion. Although Santa will be getting them from now on!! I look forward to trying the lemon juice.
