This is the recipe my grandmother used. She said it’s old, from the 1940’s. 1/2 Cup shortening 1 Cup sugar 2 Large eggs 1 teaspoon milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 1/4 Cups flour 2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt Heat oven to 375° F. Cream the shortening, sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Roll the dough and slice. Place cookies on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes (until a light, golden brown) at 375° F.
