This is a cookie my husbands Grandmother made. It was a favorite when they were growing up.

Butter Crisps

Bake 5-10 min at 400

Mix together 1/2 t. salt

2 1/4 C flour

1 C Powdered Sugar

Cut in                1/2 C Shortening

1/2 C Butter

Beat 1 egg. Sprinkle 2 T. Egg and 2 t. Vanilla over the mixture

Mix. Chill. Roll out and cut with cookie cutters. Sprinkle flour on surface to roll out the dough.

Brush with teh remaining egg (and sprinkle colored sugar if desired). Bake. It makes around 3 dozen medium cookies.
I used a cookie press to make my cookies. They were amazing! I did not sprinkle sugar on top.
