Myra Jean Palmer's Cookies
Placeholder Image
  • 3/4 cup Crisco
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour

Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine all ingredients and make into a dough ball. Chill in refrigerator; it is much easier to roll out when chilled. Work with 1/2 of the dough and roll out on a lightly floured board until about 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter for various designs. Do not grease the baking sheet. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan immediately.
