Cream shortening and sugar together. Add vanilla and eggs; beat until light and fluffy. Combine and sift last 3 ingredients together. Blend into creamed mixture. Form into 2 long rolls, 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap each roll in waxed paper; chill until firm.
Using a thin, sharp knife, cut rolls into 1/2 inch slices. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 10 dozen cookies.
