  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons milk, or as needed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat vegetable shortening, white sugar, 1/4 cup milk, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a bowl. Whisk flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Slowly beat flour mixture into shortening mixture to make a smooth dough.
  3. Roll dough out 1/4-inch thick on a floured work surface and cut into shapes. Arrange cookies on baking sheets.
