Sugar cookie

All purpose flour - 2 cups
Powdered sugar - 1 1/4 cups
Baking powder -1/4 tspn
Crisco shortening - 1 stick or cup
Salt - a pinch
Desired essence - little bit

Mix together all the ingredients except the shortening. Microwave the shortening to warmth and make a dough with the mixed ingredients by adding the shortening little by little. The dough should hold everything together. It doesn't have to be soggy. Discard the excess shortening. Roll the dough to 1 inch thickness and make shapes with cookie cutter. Arrange the cookies 1 inch apart in a cookie sheet. Preheat the oven at 325 degrees and bake for 6-7 minutes.  Insert a toothpick and see if it comes out clean. If the dough  doesn't stick to the toothpick,  its the right time to take the cookies from the oven.Cookies might be soft when taken out of the oven. When it cools off it will get hard. Store it in an airtight container.
