Shirley Blair’s Cookie Recipe

During Shirley Blair’s maniview, she mentioned she was known for making cookies, and one cookie in particular got rave reviews amongst men specifically. I thought that was a funny concept and had to try the cookies for myself.

Shirley was kind enough to share her cookie recipe with all the Manis with Grannies podcast followers.

Here is the cookie recipe for you:

Mrs. Grey’s Sugar Cookies

From Shirley Blair

  • 1 cup crisco
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 4 ½ cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp. salt

Cream crisco and sugar. Add eggs, add dry ingredients, alternating with buttermilk. Refrigerate overnight.

Take out clumps the size of a lemon and roll with floured hands. Flatten into sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees until lightly browned, approximately 10 minutes.

I haven’t had time to make the cookies yet, but I’ll update you with a new blog post once I’ve made them and tried them myself. If you make them, or have had them before, let me know!
