Christmas Cookies...

I made some Christmas cutout cookies.....omg, so yummy!

Recipe for Sugar Cookies:
Sift together:  6 c. sifted flour
                       2 tsp. baking powder
                       2 tsp. salt
                       2 tsp. baking soda
                       2 c. sugar
Cut in:           2 c. shortening (til mixture resembles a course meal)
                      (I use butter flavored Crisco)
Blend in:       4 eggs
                      ½ c. milk
                      4 tsp. vanilla
Roll Out:       on floured board to 1/8" thickness.  Cut with cookie cutters.
                      Bake at 400º for 6 - 8 minutes.  
                      This recipe does not say you have to chill dough before rolling out,
                      but I always do.  It makes it a lot easier to handle.
