Jubilee Jumbles

I got this recipe from my mom-in-law. Grandma Johnson used to make it when she was growing up. My whole family, especially the boys, love them.

3 c. flour
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. undiluted evaporated milk
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients throroughly, scraping bottom and sides of mixing bowl. If dough is soft, cover and chill for an hour. This is a very soft dough, almost muffin batter consistency. Maybe a little bit thicker, so don't be worried if it is a little soft, even after chilling. Heat oven to 375*. Drop dough by level tbsp-fulls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until almost no imprint remains when touched with finger. Immediately remove from baking sheet; cool. Frost.

This is the frosting recipe I always like to use on these:

Vanilla Butter Frosting
1/3 c. soft butter or margarine
3 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. milk

Blend butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and milk, beat until frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency. Add food coloring, if desired.
