Italian Vanilla Christmas Cookies
Italian Vanilla Cookies:
1 1/2 cups Crisco or other shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Tip: Blend eggs and sugar; then add shortening)
Sift and add to above:
6 cups flour
6 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt.
Mix with spoon and then knead with hands. Roll dough into 1- to 2-inch balls (Peggie makes the smaller balls), or roll strips of dough into “S” curved shapes.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
Tip: Peggie bakes these for 8-10 minutes, sometimes turns oven down to 375.
Cookies will still be soft when removed from oven (not crispy).
Make icing of confectionery sugar, warm milk, vanilla, butter (optional: red and green food coloring). Dip top of cookie in white, red or green icing for a glazed-like topping.
