Melts in Your Mouth Sugar Cookies

What you need: 

2/3 cup vegetable shortening
2/3 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 egg replacers (
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt Frosting:
2 cups powdered sugar
4 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
4 teaspoons nondairy milk (I use soy), as needed
food coloring, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F, and line cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, shortening, and sugar.
2. Stir in the egg replacer and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour, salt, and baking powder until a soft dough forms. Roll out the dough to desired thickness (I find it easier to roll out the dough on waxed paper so it doesn't stick) and cut out your shapes.
3. Place the shapes on prepared cookie sheet about 1" apart. Bake 10-12 minutes in preheated oven. Set aside to cool completely for frosting.
4. For frosting, mix powdered sugar, almond extract, light corn syrup, and milk in a bowl. Add food coloring if desired. Frost cookies.
Happy Baking!

Taste buttery and sugary. I find if you leave a little short of 10 min like 9 or so depending on how hot your oven gets the more softer the cookie. I put them on a cooling rack right away out of the oven so the bottoms dont brown to much from the pan. But if you want it crispy then let them stay the whole 10 min. The frosting you can add more confectioners sugar to make the right consistency so it's not runny. I used cake decorating piping tools I had lying around. Let me know how it goes.


Beautiful photo cookies you posted c4m3la.  How do they taste?

Since it's her own recipe, I'm guessing they're melt-in-your-mouth good!  ;)

I'll have to try that glassy looking frosting some time.  It's purdy!
