Description

These cookies are mixed differently from other cookies (like pie crust) but they are the best. These are the ones I grew up on. At Christmas my mom would add almond extract and green food color then make tree pattern.

Ingredients
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. 2. Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut the shortening in until it resembles course crumbs.
  3. 3. Measure the egg and add enough water to make 1/4 cup, beat together. Add egg and vanilla to crumb mixture; mix well.
  4. 4. Put through the cookie press onto cookie sheets. Decorate with sprinkles or colored sugar if desired. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 -12 minutes or until very light brown and set.
