tricky treats

I was craving some homemade sugar cookies last week and busted out some dough to make these sweet treats. These lovely pumpkins are and 'ode' to my mom because this is how she always made them.


In a large bowl combine
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp. salt
3 eggs

Mix and cream together

In a small bowl add
2 TBSP warm water
1 TBSP vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda

Stir until soda is dissolved, then add to sugar mixture.

Then add
5 cups Flour (may need to add more until the dough is not sticky and firm enough to roll out)
1 heaping tsp. Baking Powder

Mix, Roll out, Cut Shapes, and Bake at 350ยบ for 8-10 minutes.
Makes about 3 dozen
