Erin’s Ultimate Sugar Cookies

February 10, 2008 at 8:56 pm 12 comments

I was lucky enough to get my dear friend April as my secret baker during the January baked goods exchange and she did not disappoint! I pre-maturely squealed when her package came in a cheesecake box but alas my cheesecake dreams were dashed when her letter explained that it was just a box. :(

(I am so dramatic sometimes… LOL.)

She originally tried to make me one of my favorite candies, York Peppermint Patties, but for some reason her minty filling never solidified! Bummer! But plan B was to send me some of her friend, Erin’s, “secret” sugar cookie recipe.

OH.MY.GOD. Best sugar cookie EVER. (My cheesecake disappointment was long forgotten after taking that first sugar-cookie-bite. haha) I ate them all by myself in one sitting. T didn’t even have a chance to get one bite! Hey… you snooze you don’t get cookie!

Thank you Erin for making me fat sharing your recipe with April (and me)!

(Recipe from WineLoversCookingDiary | photos from me!)


1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
2 tbsp baking powder
3-1/2 cups cake flour


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Cream shortening and sugar together. Add well beaten eggs. Sift dry ingredients together. Mix dry ingredients with shortening/sugar mixture.

Roll out on floured surface. Cut into shapes. Bake for 8 minutes.

I ate every cookie and every crumb in one sitting. Enough said. ;)

    She does not have a blog though she should! She really doesn’t have time for one – she is one busy girl! :)

    Oh fun. I always hated the secret sister game, but secret baker I could play.

  • 12. CB  |  February 12, 2008 at 2:50 pm

    CHOU, I don’t hate gift exchanges but I get a little stressed out sometimes esp if I don’t know the person very well. Baking is really easy though. Who doesn’t like cookies, cakes, cupcakes, etc…right? :)
