    Uncle Seth's - Pink Frosted Cookies

    1 cup butter
    2 cups granulated white sugar
    3 eggs
    7 ounces milk
    5 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

    Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets.
    Cream the butter and sugar together.
    Add eggs 1 at a time and mix well.
    Stir in milk and vanilla
    Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and stir it into
    the cream mixture until well blended.
    Drop HEAPING spoonfuls on baking sheets.
    Bake for 10-12 minutes.
    Cool on wire racks before frosting.

    These cookies are meant to be LARGE, approx 3-4 in diameter.
    They cannot be rolled out, the dough is like a thick cake batter and
    these cookies will be cake like. They are not very pretty on their own,
    which is why the pink frosting is used.
    You can make your own icing by using my recepie for butter cream
    frosting and coloring it pink if you' d like to. The most common
    around here is to use strawberry or cherry frosting on them. (YUM!)

    They will not get brown on top, the bottom edges will start to get
    brown and they will bounce back to the touch, so you will know they
    are done. I also found the strawberry frosting at Wal-mart and they were delicious.
