  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
       1 c  Sugar
     3/4 c  Shortening (part margarine
       2    Eggs
       1 ts Vanilla or 1/2 tsp lemon
   2 1/2 c  All-purpose flour
       1 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Salt
       5    Ring-shaped rolls hard candy
      Mix sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder
   and salt. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Roll dough 1/8 thick on
   lightly floured cloth covered board. Cut into desired shapes with cookie
   cutters. Place cookies on aluminum foil-covered cookie sheet. Cut out
   designs from cookies using smaller cutters or your own patterns. Place
   whole or partially crushed candy in cutouts, depending on size and shape of
   design. (To crush candy, place between paper towels and tap lightly.
      As candy melts easily, leave pieces as large as possible). If cookies
   are to be hung, make a hole in each 1/4 from top with end of plastic
   straw. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake until cookies are very light brown
   and candy is melted, 7-9 min. If candy has not filled out cutout design,
   immediately spread with metal spatula. Cool completely on cookie sheet.
   Gently remove cookies.  About 6 dozen 3 cookies.
