"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Sift flour with salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Cream shortening; add sugar gradually and beat until fluffy. Add molasses, egg yolks and orange extract. Mix well. Thoroughly mix in flour mixture. Wrap dough in waxed paper and chill until dough can be easily handled (at least 2 - 3 hours). Roll out small portions of dough about 1/4" thick. Cut with floured 3" round cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Make a hole near the edge of each cookie with a toothpick (so that cookie can hang from tree). Bake in moderate oven, 350 about 10 - 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool about 2 minutes before removing from baking sheet. Cool completely. Decorate as desired. Makes about 3 dozen 3" cookies.
