1 cup shortening
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs, well-beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups sifted cake flour
2 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Cream shortening and sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add beaten eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to sugar mixture, blending thoroughly. Form the dough by hand into two rolls about 8 inches long and two inches in diamter. Wrap in wax paper, store in refrigerator for up to one week. Use as needed. It’s easy to change the flavor of these cookies by: 1. Using almond extract instead of vanilla. OR: 2. Use packed, brown sugar instead of white sugar, and adding 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

For baking, slice into 1/8 to 1/4-inch slices; place on greased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes.
