DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, cream the shortening and the sugar.
  • Take the mixer out and, with a wooden spoon, add the egg, whipping cream, and vanilla until thoroughly combined (it will look a bit "stiff"), but do not whip the cream too much.
  • In another bowl, mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Add half the dry mixture at a time to the wet mixture. Only mix until it is thoroughly mixed together. Dough will seem sticky.
  • Roll dough into 1" to 1-1/4" balls and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Flatten to 1/3" thick with the flat bottom of a drinking glass. They do not spread much when baking.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  • Take the cookies out of the oven and move immediately to a wire rack to cool. Frost and decorate as desired.
