Perhaps it is because I live in Minnesota, but the long standing joke is that us Lutherans love our hot dishes and Jello salads. I am not here to debate this fact, since I have been to many amazing "potluck" dinners at my church, but today St. John's Lutheran Church proved that they love milk and cookies too. Bremer Farms served milk and cookies after each service today in celebration of June Dairy Month. After twenty-five dozen cookies and many gallons of milk, no one had to be convinced how tasty and refreshing a cold glass of milk is!
My sugar cookies were a hit today, so I included the recipe for all of you to enjoy.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartarRoll in 1" balls and press down with the bottom of a drinking glass that has been dipped in sugar. Bake 6 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes 8 dozen.
