recipe box Wednesday

Back to the old wooden recipe box today, for a sweet treat to warm up a January kitchen:

Cracked Sugar Cookies

1 c. shortening
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. soda

Cream together shortening, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and egg.  Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, and soda and blend into the creamed mixture.  Shape dough into balls the size of walnuts by rolling in hands.  Dip tops in sugar and place on greased cookie sheets.  Put 1 or 2 drops of water on each cookie and bake.  Let cool slightly before removing from sheets.  Makes 3 dozen.

Chase away the winter chills and the cabin fever that is settling in by baking up a batch of warm cookies!
