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.
