Community Recipe from


  • 1 stick(s) Butter
  • 1/4 cup(s) Shortening
  • 1 cup(s) Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Salt


  1. Mix thoroughly shortening, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour, baking powder and salt. Wrap in wax paper and chill for at least 1 hour.

  2. Heat oven to 400. Roll dough 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured board. Cut into desired shapes. Place on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

  3. This is just my own icing. Mix powdered sugar with water to icing consistency. Add a little vanilla. Ice cookies about 6 at a times and top with sprinkles. Let stand ideally over night.
