This is a really great drop cookie recipe (from my mother or my aunt, whomever you think won that argument!) The cookies come out with a biscuit consistency yet they are very light.
Front with a confectioners sugar icing and any flavoring of choice (my kids love lemon!)
Preheat oven to 350°
1 cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/4 cup baking powder
1 tbsp vanilla
4+ cups flour (more than 4 cups but barely. Too much flour and you plain old biscuits)
In a mixer, thoroughly combine Crisco, sugar, vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, sift baking powder with flour. Fold the flour mixture into the Crosco/sugar mixture alternating with milk until well blended. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for approx 12 minutes or until lightly brown.
Cool on a wire rack. Remove then frost!
