ies sugar cookies yummy homemade cookie recipes

Part of the fun of Christmas time is making (and eating) Christmas cookies.  This is one cookie that everyone will love!

Peppermint Kiss Cookies:

3 1/2-4 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  In a separate bowl, cream together shortening, butter and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix until fluffy.  Add flour mixture and mix just until blended.  The dough will be soft.  Higher altitudes need 4 1/2 cups flour, lower altitudes need less.  Scoop a tbsp. of dough and roll into a ball.  Roll in sugar and place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
