Desserts: Crispy Sugar Cookies

Simple, crispy, and sweet.

Serves: 8 dozen


1/4 cup butter or margarine

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 cup uncooked kasha (fine or medium)


In mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar; beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir or sift flour and baking powder, add along with kasha to form a fairly firm dough.

Chill one hour or until dough is stiff enough to roll. On lightly floured board, roll dough 1/4-inch or thinner. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until edges begin to brown.

Decorate or leave plain.
