Sugar Cookies

I have no idea how I let this slide by Valentine's Day...we had 5(yes 5) snow days out of school last week. I had the neighborhood kids over to decorate cookies for one afternoon.  It was so fun! This recipe is a good one, it makes a lot so you may want to cut it in 1/2.  I make them for every holiday and decorate accordingly.
6 eggs
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup milk divided
1 tsp vanilla
6 tsp baking powder(dissolve in 1 cup of the milk)
3 tsp baking soda(dissolved in the remaining 1/2 cup of milk)
12 cups of flour, approx.
1/2 tsp mace

Combine all ingredients and roll out and cut into shapes.  Bake 8-10 min at 350 degrees.  Frosting~ 3/4 bag of powdered sugar
1/2 cup shortening
**some**water(to consistency)
1/2 tsp each vanilla, lemon and almond extract
food coloring...Mix all together.  YUM! Enjoy~
