 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4   c            Sugar
      1/2   c            Melted butter
    2                    Eggs beaten
    1       t            Vanila
    2       c            Sifted flour
    1       t            Cream of tartar
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
      1/2   ts           Salt
 
    Blend sugar and shortening welll.  Stir in beaten
   eggs and vanila. Sift and mix dry ingredients and add
   to butter mixture, blending well. Chill. Turn on to
   lightly blouredboard and roll to 1/8 inch thickness.
   Cut with floured cutters.
   
    Before baking, I sprinkle colored sugar on to the
   cookies. It sticks and then there’s no need for
   frosting, unless you would rather have it.
   
    On greased cookie sheets, bake in dg.375 oven for 10
   to 12 minutes.
