DIRECTIONS

  • Cream shortening and sugar with electric mixer.
  • Add eggs one at a time and beat well.
  • Add buttermilk, flavor extracts, baking soda and cream of tarter and blend well.
  • Now by hand with a wooden spoon, add flour 1 cup at a time until the mixture is stiff.
  • Drop from heaping tablespoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet 2 to 3 inches apart. If not icing you may press on the nuts or sprinkles now (or you can ice or frost and decorate with sprinkles after baking).
  • Bake in a preheated 375F oven, center oven rack, 10 to 13 minutes or until cookie edges are slightly brown and tops look set. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Overbaking cause dry, hard cookies.
  • Carefully remove to rack to cool. Frost or decorate as desired.
  • Notes: recipe may be halved, cookies freeze well, for best baking use an insulated baking sheet as these tend to burn on the bottom. Store airtight.
