Today we have a 4H Goat Project meeting… so I thought with St. Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I’d bake ‘n share a little goat love!
I use a family favorite: Brown Sugar Cookies (originally from my MIL).
1/2 cup Crisco veg shortening, 1/2 cup softened margarine, 2 cups dark brown sugar. CREAM together. Add 3 eggs – one at a time – and beat well. Sift dry ingredients: about 5 cups flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt and add to butter/sugar mixture. In another small bowl, add 1 tsp baking soda, 1 Tablespoon boiling water and 1 – 2 drops of a.c. vinegar. Finally, add this to wet mixture along with 1 tsp vanilla.
OPTIONAL: I’ve added 1/4 cup cocoa powder with dash of pepper to this batch. Cinnamon/ginger also is very nice. HINT: This cookie recipe is also nice when making ice cream sandwiches.
Roll out on floured board; cut into shapes & decorate w/sugar sprinkles, (or ice after baking & cooled) as desired. Bake at 350 degree F for approx 10 – 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack. YOU COULD LET THE KIDS DECORATE/PERSONALIZE THEIR OWN COOKIE!
My hubby likes ’em cuz they’re good dunkers!
YUM! I found my goat-shaped cookie cutter here.
