Mom's Holiday Frosted Cookies

1 Cup shortening
2 Cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 Cup milk + 2 Tbl vinegar, combined = sour milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
4 1/2-6 Cups flour

Cream together shortening, sugar and eggs. Add in sour milk, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and gradually add in enough flour until it forms a nice dough. Chill 1/2 hour. Roll out 1/4 " thick with cookie cutters (I use 5" shape cutters). Bake 350' for 8 minuets. Frost and decorate when cool. Makes about 3 dozen 5" cookies.


2 lb powdered sugar
1/4 Cup shortening
3 tsp vanilla
1/2 Cup milk
Food coloring

Combine all, adding in enough milk for desired consistency. Seperate enough in each bowl and mix with desired food colors. Frost cookies.
