"I got this recipe from my Aunt. I love baking cookies, and I've never tasted a better cookie than these. They're great for cutting out shapes because they don't rise like a lot of other cookie dough does and they keep there shape! My family loves them.... and I know yours will too! Enjoy =)"
Cream shortening, sugar and vanilla. Add egg, beat till light and fluffy, stir in milk. Sift together dry ingredients, blend into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half, chill for 1 hour. Roll on floured surface, cut out shapes.
