Flower Freshener
Before you put cut flowers into a vase, mix two tablespoons of mouthwash with one gallon of water and fill the vase with the mixture. The mouthwash will kill germs that reduce how long your flowers last.

Old time Sugar cookies
3 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs, or 4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar (for sprinkling)
1 or 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Sift half of the flour with the baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Cream together butter or shortening until light, gradually adding sugar; beat until fluffy. On medium low speed, beat in eggs, milk, and vanilla. Stir in flour/baking powder mixture.
Add enough of the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour to make a smooth dough that is not too stiff. Do not add too much flour or the cookies will be heavy. Chill dough for 1 hour or more. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar with the cinnamon. After dough is thoroughly chilled, roll out and cut into shapes using cookies cutters dipped in flour. Sprinkle with the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
Arrange 1-inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake in a preheated 400°F. oven for 9 or10 minutes, watching carefully near the end of baking.
