Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie Recipe

I absolutely love old fashioned sugar cookies and pineapple so this recipe for sugar cookies combines both plus some walnuts for extra crunch.  These cookies are great for afternoon tea or for a baby shower treat. 

You can even make them smaller for a tiny sugar cookie treat.  Just place the dough onto cookie sheets by the 1/2 tablespoon.  Reduce the cooking time to 7 or 8 minute or until slightly brown around the edges.  Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie Recipe Ingredients

• 4 cups all purpose flour
• 2 cups sugar
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup chopped walnuts
• 1 cup vegetable shortening
• 2 large eggs, separated
• 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
• 1 cup evaporated milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained

Directions for Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Your oven should be warmed to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening, sugar, and egg yolks.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda.

The lemon juice should be added to the evaporated milk.

Beginning with the flour mixture, alternately add the dry mix and the milk to the creamed ingredients. 

Add the vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.  Stir pineapples and walnuts into mixture.

Beat egg white in a small bowl until stiff then fold the egg whites into the cookie dough.

Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Drop sugar cookie dough 3 inches apart onto cookie pan by rounded tablespoons.

Spray the back of a spoon with cooking spray and use to flatten each cookie.  You may need to recoat the spoon occasionally if the sugar cookie dough begins to stick to the spoon.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until the sugar cookies are lightly brown around the edges.  Immediately remove the old fashioned sugar cookies from the cookie sheet and cool on wire racks.

Note:  For just a bit more flavor and decoration, sprinkle cookies with a bit of sugar cinnamon, and nutmeg before baking.  Freshly grated nutmeg is the best!

These old fashioned sugar cookies should be stored in an airtight container after they are completely cooled.
