cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
cup shortening - butter flavor Crisco works well

cup brown sugar
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and shortening.
Add sugars gradually.
Add beaten eggs and vanilla.
Combine flour, salt and soda and gradually add to creamed mixture
If mixture is hard to work with I sometimes chill it for a few minutes before adding to cookie press.
Fill cookie press 1/2 full and form designs on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 375. Check at 9 minutes in case your oven cooks faster.
