DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the shortening, butter and sugar together.
  • Blend in the vanilla, almond extract and nuts.
  • Sift together flour and salt, adding it to wet ingredients and mixing until dough is smooth and well blended.
  • Shape into small balls (1 tbsp of dough for each).
  • Place balls on ungreased baking sheet and flatten bottoms just enough so they won't roll.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  • Roll cookies in powdered sugar after baking.
  • Option: If desired, top with colored sugar, coconut or more nuts before baking and then don't roll in powdered sugar after baking.
