Makes 5-6 dozen

3-1/2 cups of flour

2 tsp baking powder

1-1/4 tsp salt

I substitute 1 cup of salted margarine for the shortening and butter and then delete the additional salt from above.

1/2 cup of shortening

3 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla


Pour flour into a mixing bowl

Add baking powder and salt , cream sugar, butter, shortening, eggs and vanilla thoroughly.

Add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Mix well.

Chill several hours until firm.

Roll out small portions of dough on lightly floured surface to a 1/8″ thickness.

Cut with cookie cutters.

Place on baking sheet.

Sprinkle with sugar or decorative sugar.

Bake at 375 for 8 – 10 minutes.

Serve on a fancy festive plate or you may use your wood serving board.
