      In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set
      In a large mixer bowl, beat butter and shortening together. Add sugar
   and beat until light and fluffy; beat in egg and extract. With mixer at low
   speed, gradually blend in flour mixture just until well-mixed. Turn dough
   out onto a sheet of plastic wrap, cover with another sheet, flatten into a
   disc and chill until firm, 15 to 30 minutes.
      While the dough is chilling, give each child a few 3-by-5-inch index
   cards. Cut each card to resemble a pair of sunglasses (just the frames, not
   the temples); set patterns aside. Divide Life Savers by colors. Place each
   color in a freezer-weight zipper-sealed plastic bag and crack coarsely with
   a tin can or meat mallet.
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place about half the dough on a surface
   lightly sprinkled with flour. Sprinkle dough lightly with additional flour
   and roll to about 1/4-inch thick. Lay sunglasses patterns on dough and cut
   around. Cut holes for “lenses” out of each cookie, leaving “frame” at least
   1/2-inch wide all around. Lift cookies onto a lightly greased, foil-lined
   baking sheet. Spoon crushed candy into lens holes, filling level with top
   of cookie. Bake 7 to 9 minutes; let cool completely on sheets. Carefully
   peel off foil. Yield: 18 large cookies.
