Christmas Goodies

I love Christmas tins decorated with frosty snowmen and little birds...



teddy bears, presents, and holly.

Especially when there's something inside!


Hey! What's hiding in there?

Are those cookies?



Yes! These are cookies!



The yummiest, Soft Sugar Cookies I have ever eaten!



Perfect for the holidays!


Soft Sugar Cookies

(These are a drop cookie... no rolling required!)

Cream together the following 3 ingredients until light and fluffy.

2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup SOFT butter (do not melt)
1 1/2 cups sugar


Add the following ingredients to creamed mixture and mix well.

2 eggs
3 t. vanilla extract
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder

Gently fold in the following ingredient. Do not over-mix.

3 1/2 cups flour

Use a small melon scoop to measure out the dough, and roll into small balls. Roll cookie dough balls in sugar (colored decorator sugar would be nice). Place sugared cookie dough balls on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 350 F for 10 minutes.

Makes 6 dozen cookies.

Yum!
