Christmas Sugar Cookies



8 cups all -purpose flour
1 1/4 cup sugar
7 oz.  unsalted  margarine
3.5 oz. lard or add more margarine
0.7 oz ammonia 
eggs (4whole and 2 yolks)
1/2 cup milk
brown raw sugar


Chop first a flour, sugar, margarine, lard, then eggs. Place ammonia into a large pot and pour in boiling milk, then add this mixture to our dough. Knead until the dough forms into a ball (long enough to be soft and flexible).

Divide the dough into 3-4 parts. Roll out one part at a time of the dough to a thickness of 5 mm (not thinner),  cut out different shapes of cookies. Before baking spread one side of the cookie with the little beaten white eggs and touch in raw brown sugar.

Arrange them on a baking tray lined with baking paper in small increments. Bake at 392 ° F for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Remove, let them cool off, on a cooling rack.
