  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 16 servings
  
   1 1/4 c  Granulated sugar
   1 1/2 c  White shortening; solid
     1/2 c  Nonfat dry milk powder
       1 ts Light corn syrup
       3    Eggs
   4 1/4 c  Cake flour; sifted
   1 1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/4 ts Salt
     2/3 c  Water
   1 1/2 ts Vanilla extract
  
      In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and solid white shortening
   until light and fuffy.  Stir in dry milk solids and corn syrup. Add eggs,
   one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, sift
   together the cake flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add dry ingredients to
   creamed mixture alternately with the water, beginning and ending with the
   dry ingredients.  Stir in vanilla. Scoop out 1/3 cup of batter and place it
   on a greased and floured baking sheet. Smooth out to 3 1/2-inch circle.
   Batter will spread considerably so do not bake more than four on one cookie
   sheet at a time.     Bake in 350F oven 18 minutes or until lightly browned.
   Cool on cake rack; frost half of cookie with chocolate fondant and half
   with vanilla.   Hold cookie over bowl whilefrosting. Work quickly while
   fondant is warm.
