Why I Love This Recipe

This is the recipe that my mom used

Ingredients You'll Need

2/3 cup shortening
¾ cup sugar
1 Tbls orange peel
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
4 tsp milk
2 cups flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt


Cream first 4 ingredients together. Add egg and milk and beat until light and fluffy. Stir last

three ingredients together and add in two parts. Mix thoroughly. Chill covered tightly at least 1 hour (overnight is okay). Sift ¼ cup flour and ¼ cup powdered sugar. Use small amount of mixture to roll cookie dough out 1/8 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters or biscuit cutter. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 8 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Glaze or frost and decorate with decorator icing. I like to glaze them and sprinkle with sprinkles or colored sugar. Put in sandwich baggies and tie with ribbon. Hang on tree if desired.
