Kringle's Cutout Cookies

This recipe is from a 1990 Crisco grocery store give-away pamplet.

2/3 cup Butter Flavor Crisco
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp + 1 tsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Cream Crisco, sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Beat in egg. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix into creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll half the dough at a time to about 1/8-inch thickness on floured surface. Cut in desired shapes. Place cookies 2-inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with colored sugar and decors or leave plain to frost when cool. Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes. Cool slightly. Remove to cooling rack.

Makes approximately 3 dozen average-sized cookies.
