I've used this recipe for years. In fact, when my daughter was in kindergarten the teacher liked the recipe and used it for years in the classroom. It makes a very "workable" dough. ENJOY!

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

2/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix all together

Blend in:

3 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp soda

Chill and then cut out. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes


Cream together:

1/4 cup butter

2 cups powdered sugar


1 tsp vanilla

2 T milk

Color as desired

I always go to www.allrecipe.com. You can search for any recipes. Others that have make the recipe give a rating and an opinion. It helps you to pick out the best recipe. Now people think I am a great cook! I keep all my recipes there in my own personal "recipe box".
