DO YOU REMEMBER that good old southern cooking? When I was growing up, my granny was my favorite cook. My mama was an amazing cook as well, but there was just something about being in granny’s kitchen. We all gathered around the table when we went to her house.
I have made it so easy for you to learn how to cook like my granny and mama did with cooking tutorials for each and every recipe in our cookbooks. You can see how to order these by visiting us on our website. Oh and no difficult to find or crazy ingredients! Just simple ingredients and really good food.
Hey yall!, it’s Tammy with Collard Valley Cooks! I am a southern girl born in raised in Collard Valley in Polk County Georgia. My entire (Benefield) family had around 150 acres and we mostly raised cattle. We went to church on Sunday, school during the week, the grocery store on Friday’s and that was our life. No vacations, no camping, just plain old southern country people

NOW FOR THIS FAMILY RECIPE:
Basic Sugar Cookie Recipe
1 stick butter room temp.
½ cup shortening
1 cup sugar
½ tsp. soda
2 eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
¼ tsp. butter extract
3 cups of all-purpose flour

Cream shortening and butter until it looks like mayonnaise. Add sugar, soda, eggs and extracts and beat until it looks like fluffy
Creamed potatoes. Now add flour.

Sugar Cookies: Drop by small teaspoons and bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. You want your sugar cookies to be brown around the edges! Optional: Sprinkle with sugar crystals.

Snickerdoodles: Drop the cookies out with small teaspoon and pat down a little. Sprinkle well with cinnamon sugar! You can roll them in cinnamon sugar if you chill the dough first. Cook on 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

Chocolate Drop:
Add chopped pecans to your dough. Beat well and refrigerate.
Drop out with cookie scoop or roll in round balls with your hands.
Use your thumb and put a print in the center. Bake these at 350 for 16 minutes so the pecans taste toasty and the cookies get good and crunchy. Put chocolate icing in center for chocolate drop! Use pastry bag if desired!

Are the sugar cookies soft or crunchy?

My Momma always leveled her sugar cookies with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar and all these years later I still do it that way. I didn't even realize it until I watched this video and I could see her standing in our kitchen doing it. Thank you for reminding me.

Blayne Cooper says:

Fold the bag down as you load it with chocolate. Then flip up the sides and they stay nice and clean and it's easier to fill it. Cookies look great!

Great recipe – 3 in 1 – ya can't beat that. And I have to comment about the spices. I'd never heard of Penzeys but I noticed that you've mentioned them a few times. So I looked them up online & placed an order for my Thanksgiving spices. Then I did a taste test with my regular cinnamon & Penzeys cinnamon. Oh my goodness! My regular cinnamon tasted like pure sawdust compared to theirs. At that point, I would've been a die-hard customer except for this. I began getting emails from them, as expected, but one of them had a link to a very political video – something about sending Pres. Trump to jail for Russian stuff. That just really ticked me off. I thought – can't we leave politics out of anything anymore??? I immediately sent them an email telling them how I felt about it & unsubscribed from further emails. Now I'm not even going to say here whether I agree or disagree because this is not my channel & I'm not going to bring up my politics. I'm just as much of a red blooded American as anyone but I get so tired of all the negative opinions being shoved in my face. That's why it bothered me so much that a spice co. would do that.
Anyway… I LOVE the cinnamon and I never realized there could be so much of a difference. Now that I know this, I'll never again be satisfied with those great big bottles for $1.00. I always thought I was onto something. Lol
Thanks for another great recipe!:)

Why not just put a Hershey kiss in the middle of the thumbprint and bake it

Very good recipe to have Tammy! Thank you so much for sharing. Hope you have a video on those donuts because I couldn't help but stare at them. Lol Have a great day!

Deborah Crutchfield says:

Thank you for this recipe I am going to makes these next week. Love you can get three different cookies from one recipe. I found a butter cookie recipe that you can make three different cookies so good. We had a cookie exchange at church last week and they loved them. So I will share with them

Alicia Davidson says:

Miss Tammy I got my books in yesterday!!! Can't wait to try several of the recipes they look great. I made the Italian cream cake for my mom's birthday yesterday she was still bragging on it today! Thanks so much for the video! It really helps to see recipes done live! :)

Evon Diamond says:

Hi Tammy I missed what you added to the batter to make the snicker doodles ? Looks so yummy. Love Y’all

Mary Rodger says:

Those cookies look delicious and thanks again for a great video.

Della Juanita Underwood says:

Now, Tammy, you have to say soda right. My Granny always said, "sodie." She also said "jeck" for jerk. Her fried fish was to die for and I hate fish. Her biscuits were phenomenal and I learned to make cornbread by watching her. She introduced me to (get this) a creamed potato sandwich when I was 14. That was the best thing I have ever eaten and I cannot replicate it. I loved her dearly and miss her every day.

Sandy Wilkerson says:

Yum! They all look good! ❤️

Angie Hayward says:
