Comments: Was very easy to work with the dough. Original recipe called for 1 1/2 c. butter. We tweaked just a little
List of Ingredients
3/4 c. margarine, softened original called for 1 1/2 c.
3/4 c. shortening
2 c. white granulated sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
5 c. all-purpose flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
Cream butter, shortening and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients thoroughly. Cover and chill for at least one hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400º. Roll dough on floured surface to 1/4? to 1/2?. Cut into shapes and place 1? apart on ungreased cookie sheet (I used parchment paper).
Bake 6-8 minutes (1/2? took 8 minutes). Cool completely on wire racks.
I made mine 1/4 inch and they raise up beautifully.
