2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. shortening
1 c. milk
7 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
Cream sugar, eggs, vanilla, milk and shortening. Sift 2 cups of the flour with
soda and cream of tartar. Stir well into cream mixture. Add rest of flour 1 cup

at a time, stirring well each time until dry ingredients are mixed in. Chill for
1 hour. Roll and cut out shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. I
dust my board where I roll out cookies lightly with flour. If they don't roll
easy. mix in a little more flour. Can frost and decorate or good plain.
