Directions:
Thoroughly cream shortening, sugar, and vanilla. Add egg; beat till light and fluffy. Stir in milk. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Chill 1 hour. On floured surface, roll to 1/8-inch thickness.* Cut in desired shapes with cutters.

cookies.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
*Roll only half of dough at a time; keep remainder chilled for easier rolling. I always multiply the recipe - at least twice, sometimes times 3 - it doesn't seem worth
going to all that trouble for 2 dozen cookies!
Have fun!
