  1. Mix shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla together in large bowl. Stir flour, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Blend dry ingredients in with the shortening mixture. Mix thoroughly with hands.

  3. Heat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Cut into 1/4 inch slices, and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool.
