{Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies & Cream Cheese Frosting}

2 c. sugar
1 c. shortening
1 c. milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 eggs

Mix together and add enough flour to make a soft dough (about 6 cups). Chill for 30 minutes. Roll and cut. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

These are delicious and really easy. Have fun decorating! I love Cream Cheese Frosting with these sugar cookies, here is a good recipe for it.

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
About 2 tbsp. mild

Blend cream cheese and vanilla together. Gradually add powdered sugar. Add enough mild to make spreading easy. Add food coloring for favorite color.
