Tips

Great cookies to make with kids. They love cutting them and decorating them. Adding food coloring to the dough or decorating them with colorful toppings makes them more festive!


Directions

Mix & sift 1-1/2 c. flour, baking powder & salt. Cream shortening until soft; beat in sugar, egg, vanilla & cream/milk. Stir in flour mixture, then gradually add enough remaining flour to make dough stiff enough to roll; chill thoroughly (1 hr or more). Place on floured board & roll 1/8 of an inch thick. Cut with floured cutter & place on ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle w/sugar & bake in moderately hot oven (375-400 degrees) for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on cooling rack. Enjoy!
