      Title: Christmas stars
 Categories: Cookies, Christmas, Usenet
      Yield: 3 Dozen
 
MMMMM--------------------------COOKIES-------------------------------
      1 c  Solid shortening
           -(NOT butter)
    2/3 c  Granulated sugar
      2    Eggs
      1 t  Salt
      1 t  Vanilla
      1 t  Almond flavoring
  2 3/4 c  Flour

MMMMM--------------------------FROSTING-------------------------------
  1 1/2 c  Powdered sugar
      2 T  Cream or milk
  1 1/2 t  Vanilla (not Mexican,
           -unless you like
           -tan frosting)
           Food coloring
 
  Cream together the shortening and sugar.  Beat in the eggs, salt and
  flavorings.  Stir in the flour until blended.  Chill in the
  refrigerator for an hour or two.
  
  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Roll out on a floured surface to a
  thickness of about 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Cut with the cookie cutters of
  your choice (this was always a cause for argument in our family).
  Bake on ungreased cookie sheets until tan around the edges, about
  8-10 minutes. Allow to cool.
  
  Make the frosting by beating together the sugar, milk and vanilla
  until smooth.  Divide and color each portion.  Frost the cookies.
  
  NOTES:
  
  *  Frosted cookie-cutter cookies -- My mom got this recipe many years
  ago in a cookbook that came in installments, so it didn't have a name
  on the binder and I don't know what it was called. She had us (the
  kids) make these cookies every year. Yield: 2-4 dozen.
  
  *  These cookies are about the only ones I know that taste better
  cooked and cold than as raw dough.
  
  *  Cinnamon red hots make good eyes for animals or Santas.
  
  : Difficulty:  easy to moderate.
  : Time:  15 minutes preparation, 2 hours chilling, 15 minutes rolling
  and baking.
  : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
