A Little Yummy Fun!

Mix 3/4 cup shortening, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, and 1 tsp vanilla.  Blend in 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp salt.  Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.  Heat oven to 375.  Roll dough to 1/8" thickness on lightly floured board.  Cut out your shapes.  Bake for 7-9 minutes.  Best before edges turn brown.
Really good fresh out of the oven.
Even better with a little icing.
Icing: Mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tbsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla.  It will be a little runny.  Paint on cookies.

The best part is tasting your artwork!
