These are very tender cookies. Should you want to alter them for a later date add different flavor extracts. I got this recipe years ago when I was a girl scout.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shortening

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup white sugar for decoration

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Cover dough and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in the remaining sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  3. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven, or until just barely golden. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
