This is a favorite of our family. I make these every Christmas, and other shapes at other times of the year.


1 c. shortening
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
2 and 1/4 c. sifted all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. almond extract
Green food coloring (for Christmas tree cookies)


Cream shortening and sugar. Add unbeaten egg, sifted dry ingredients, flavoring and coloring. Mix well. Use a cookie press, to press shapes onto a cookie sheet. Decorate as desired. 

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
