I am going to share one of my have recipes that my own mother used to make every year for the holidays…..shhhhhh…. don't tell her…its a secret
Melt in your mouth Shortbread Cookies
1 box cake flour (Swans Down)
1 lb (box) powdered sugar, sifted
1 lb butter
2 c crisco
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix Crisco, butter, eggs, vanilla and baking soda. Add in sifted sugar, blend. Add cake flour - dough will be stiff. Use a table spoon to drop dough onto cookie sheet. Cookies can be shaped or cut but I just usually make drops.
Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes.
