DIRECTIONS

  • Combine flour and shortening as if for pie crust. Add baking powder and combine.
  • In a separate bowl, beat eggs and then add sugar and vanilla.
  • Add flour mixture to egg mixture.
  • To shape cookies, you can simply roll them into 1-inch balls or you can roll them into logs and fold them into pretzel shapes. They will puff up some but will mostly retain whatever shape you form them into.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. They will not brown much.
  • Cool and frost with your favorite glaze and add sprinkles. For convenience, you can melt store-bought frosting.
