      3/4 cup solid shortening (butter flavored preferred)
      1 cup granulated sugar
      2 eggs
      1 tsp vanilla
      2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
      1-1/2 tsp baking powder
      1/4 tsp salt

      Cream shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla in large mixer bowl
      at medium speed of electric mixer until light and creamy.
      Cmbine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture,
      mixing on low speed until well blended. Cover dough and chill
      1 hour, if desired, for easy rolling. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
      Roll half of dough at a time. Roll out dough on lightly floured
      surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut in
      desired shapes. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Roll leftover
      pieces. Sprinkle with coloured decorations or leave plain to
      decorate when cool. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes,
      or until edges are light brown. (Time will vary with cookie
      size.) Cool slightly, then remove to cooling rack. Cool
      completely before decorating.

      Yield: about 36 cookies
