Grandma Walters' Favorite Sugar Cookies

Grandma Walters' Sugar Cookies 

 2 cups sugar
1 cup lard
2 eggs
1 teaspoon soda 
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk
enough flour to make a fairly stiff dough ( 5-6 cups)
flavor with nutmeg or vanilla
refrigerate before rolling 

Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes (depending on how thick you roll them)
When cookies are done frost and decorate.

 This recipe may be doubled or tripled 
and lard can be replaced with Crisco. 


This photo of Grandma with her two loving grandson's
 Mike & Steve 
was taking at her 100th birthday party.  


This photo of Grandma & Grandpa 
was taken in their front yard 
with Steve & Connie 
on their honeymoon 1976. 


Martha Rachel Walters lived just short of 102 years.

Grandma will always hold a dear sweet place in the hearts
 of those that knew and loved her. 

Grandma we miss you.
