The Rosiethon. Day 3. Jo's Sugar Cookies.


These are my favorite Sugar Cookies.
The addition of nutmeg raises these cookies to a new level.

Jo's Sugar Cookies

1 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup salad oil

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and both sugars together. 
 Beat eggs with salt and add to creamed mixture.

I love nutmeg in sugar cookies. My great-grandma's recipe uses nutmeg!

As far as I'm concerned, the nutmeg makes these.
