Ingredients

  • 3/4 c shortening (part butter or margarine, softened)
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla (or 1/2 tsp lemon extract)
  • 2 1/2 c Gold Medal (all-purpose) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Mix the shortening, sugar, eggs, and flavoring together thoroughly (best to cream the the shortening and sugar together until smooth first). Blend in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover and chill for at least an hour.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F and line your baking sheet(s) with parchment paper. Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured pastry mat or board. Cut out desired shapes and transfer them to your baking sheet(s). Bake 6-8 minutes or until very lightly brown.

Notes

*Recipe as it was originally printed with very minor exceptions and an additional note or two, such as creaming the shortening and sugar together. Also, although the recipe states that it yields 4 dozen 3" cookies, my batches have never yielded more than 3 dozen :)
