Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Add hot milk. Mix together dry ingredients and add to flour mixture. Slowly add flour mixture to blended ingredients. Mix well. Refrigerate for at least a half hour.

My Grandma Maude's recipe. She always made them as big, round cutout cookies, sprinkled with sugar. A family favorite!
