2 cups sugar

1 cup butter or shortening

2 large eggs

Cream sugar and butter/shortening. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour to creamed mixture. Mix in milk. Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.  Roll out dough on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness and cut with a round, 2 inch, cookie cutter.
