Ethel's Sugar Cookies
Ingredients:3/4 cup shortening ( The original recipe calls for part butter and part crisco. I used 1/2 c butter flavored crisco and 1/4 cup butter)
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
It is very important to beat the shortening , sugar and eggs till light and fluffy....about 3-4 minutes. Add vanilla.
Measure flour by dipping method. Stir flour baking powder, and salt together. Add slowly to sugar mixture, beating between each addition.
When the flour is complete incorporated remove it from the bowl.
Shape the dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hour. This is a double batch so there is a lot of dough!!
Beautiful wrapping makes it even more special!!
