Servings: 72
Categories: Cookies / Desserts / Holidays

3/4  c  Shortening
1  c  Sugar
2    Eggs -- beaten
2  ts  Grated orange rind
3 1/2  c  Sifted all-purpose flour
3  ts  Baking powder
1/2  ts  Salt
1/2  ts  Vanilla
1/3  c  Milk

Cream shortning and sugar. Beat eggs and rind into mixture. Sift dry ingredients. Add 1/2 of dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix well. Add vanilla and milk and remaining dry ingredients. Chill well. Roll 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured board or pastry cloth; cut into shapes with cooky cutters. Bake on ungreased cooky sheet in moderate oven (375 deg. F) about 8-10 min. Makes about 6 doz. cookies. The illustrations show a row of weirdly pin-headed gingerbread persons in sugar overalls, and a fetching plateful of bells, boots, wreaths, and what might be intended to be reindeer.
