Mrs. Ramire’s Sugar Cutout cookies.

These were my dad’s all time favorite cookie.  I think that’s why I enjoy making them so much.  I break this out whenever I make cutout cookies – Valentine’s Day, Easter, Superbowl Sunday and of course, Christmas.  The recipe is from a family friend, Mrs Ramire.  Again, my decorating skills stink, so I make them as sandwich cookies. 

1 1/2 cups shortening,  1 1/3 cups sugar,    4 eggs,  1 tsp vanilla,   4 cups flour,            1 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder.

Cream shortening and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes.   add eggs and vanilla.  mix in two cups of flour.  add remaining twould cups, salt and baking powdee.  cover and chill overnight.     roll out on floured surface and cut.  bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees.  6 to 8 minutes.  (lightly browned on bottom, somewhat set on top).  do not overbake.  frost and decorate as you wish!
