Long Lost Sugar Cookie Recipe

This recipe was a favorite back in the day, and then Mom could never seem to find it/remember which one it was. Luckily Lori is on top of things and preserved this gem. I doubled the recipe since I like to roll them out thick, and cut them big Enjoy!

2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 t cream of tartar
1/2 t soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 t vanilla

Cream butter/shortening and sugars. Add egg and vanilla. Mix flour, soda, salt, tartar. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refridgerate dough for a few hours. Roll out, cut and Bake at 375 degrees, for 6-8 min. Frost with buttercream frosting.
