I love fluffy sugar cookies that aren't too sweet... just perfectly delicious!
Here's how I do it! The trick to really fluffy cookies is... pureed beans. Yep, pretty crazy 'eh? Well here's my recipe in case you're still curious! You can make them without beans too if it's just too wild.
Serves 40 (2.5") , 20 min-prep dough, 40 min-shape and cook
1 c. sugar
¼ t. salt
1 c. shortening or butter (I use 3/4 c. of pureed beans and 1/4 c. shortening or butter).
1 t. baking soda
½ c. evaporated milk or cream
1 t. vanilla
3½ c. flour
1 t. cream of tartar
Cream together sugar and shortening. Then add rest of ingredients. Mix with an electric mixer. Roll out dough ½” thick on a floured surface and cut out shapes with cookie cutters or roll into balls.
Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.
