DIRECTIONS

  • Cream sugar, shortening and eggs in large mixing bowl. Mix in other ingredients—add flour a little at a time, using wooden spoon if mix gets too thick for electric mixer. Chill dough for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Use plenty of flour to roll out dough about 1/4 in thick; cut with assorted cookie cutters. Bake for 10-12 min or until cookies are just lightly brown on bottom.
  • Frosting: Melt butter in microwave; add milk and vanilla and stir.
  • Place powdered sugar in separate containers. Add a little milk mixture and stir until frosting reaches desired consistency. Use food coloring and assorted sprinkles to frost/decorate cookies as desired.
