25 Days of Christmas: Day 11

Christmas cookies, that is. Who doesn't love them? (Answer: Jerks. :) )
It is now the time on sprockets that I share with you a christmas cookie recipe! :D

Sugar Cookies!!

1/4 cup shoretening
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp. almond extract (imitation works just as well :) )
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Mix butter, sugar, shortening and egg together thoroughly. Stir in milk and almond extract. Stir in flour, baking poweder and salt. Chill dough until easy to handle. Roll to about 1/8 (or 1/4) inch, cut into desired shapes. (Like Christmas trees! :D ) Place on a slightly greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sugar, and bake at 425 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes (until delicately brown)
Makes about 5 dozen 21/2 inch cookies (or less if you roll to 1/4 inch)
