Cream Crisco, add sugar gradually and cream. Add milk and vanilla to beaten eggs. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with liquid ingredients to Crisco and sugar mixture. Chill. Roll out a portion of chilled dough (keep the rest in refrigerator) on floured bread board about 1/4 in thick. Cut - sprinkle with sugar and bake in oven (375-400)
