Mom's Sugar Cookies

1 c. shortening 4 c. flour
3 T. baking powder 1 egg
3/4 c. milk 1 t. salt
1 c. sugar Add flavoring desired but lemon is best
Sift dry ingredients together. Work in shortening, add egg, milk and flavorings. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until bottom of cookies are golden brown. Cookies are best when dough rolled out to 1/3 inch thick.
Frost with 2 c.(or more) powdered sugar, 1/2 c. shortening or 1 stick of butter, little salt and slowly add little bits of milk to achieve right consistency (not runny). Can add lemon juice or lemon flavoring (1 t.) to frosting.
