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