BRER  RABBIT  GINGERBREAD  MEN
from Mary Lou Mulick

1 cup shortening
1 cup of light or dark molasses
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Cream shortening and sugar.  Stir in molasses.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Cover and chill.
On a floured surface, roll 1/4 inch thick.  With cookie cutter, cut into desired shapes.
Place on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake in pre-heated 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.  Cool and frost or decorate as desired.
**Note;  I usually make a double batch of this recipe as this is one that you can use for a gingerbread house but you will need a bit more than the double batch…..Lots of fun, include you kids as they will love it…….

JANE’S  SUGAR  COOKIES
from Julie Bennett

1 cup butter
1 cup Crisco
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together and roll into balls.  Press with the bottom of a sugared glass, (one with a design on bottom of glass will work just fine). 
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.. You can add food coloring to make different colored cookies.  These also are super frosted….

WHITE  SUGAR  COOKIES
from Gwen O’Mara

2/3 cup of shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond or lemon extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour

Mix all ingredients together.  Chill several hours or overnight in a covered bowl.  Roll out on floured board 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch thick.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  Cool..
Now for the frosting:
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
1/3 cup powered non-dairy creamer
1/2 to 3/4 cup Crisco
5 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients in an electric mixer.  Beat 3 minutes on medium then 5 minutes on high.  This frosting can be kept in refrigerator for several weeks.  This can also be put on the other cookie recipe as it is so good…..

Until next week, have a cookie baking party with you friends and their children then just see how much fun all will have….
God Bless,
Carol Jean
