Today . . . January 23. It's so cold outside! We are going to have temperatures below freezing for the next two weeks. I'm trying hard to embrace these slow January days but I have to admit that it's getting harder and harder to do!
On my playlist . . . This was my era, my music when I was growing up in my teens. I always admired David Crosby, he was an exceptional musician. Rest in peace.
Looking out my window . . . Again, it's cold and very blah outside my window. The sun did shine for a few minutes yesterday, but today, nothing. A few weeks ago, I was able to get a shot of the sunset...it's a rare thing to see these days.
1 cup sugar put in bowl with
3 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
Cut into this mixture 1 cup shortening. When well mixed add:
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
Grate rind of 1 lemon or orange into dough, if desired. Chill dough and then roll out and cut. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. This is a good recipe for making holiday cookies to be frosted.
