This recipe was handed down to Mary Jane, from New Holstein, Wisconsin from her mother who originally received it from an elderly neighbor over 100 years ago!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sour milk (see Note)
  • 3 1/2 cups cake flour
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin to roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out cookies and place on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden around edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Notes
  • To make sour milk, stir together 1 cup milk with either 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice. Let mixture sit 10 to 15 minutes. The milk should begin to curdle slightly. You now have sour milk for your baking needs!
     
  • Once cool, decorate with your favorite icing.
