    3/4 c  Granulated sugar
    1/2 c  Butter or margarine --

    1/2 c  Shortening
      1 ts Vanilla extract
      1    Egg
  2 1/4 c  All-purpose flour -- or

  level off. Stir in the flour, cocoa and baking powder; mix well.
  Shape the dough into 1-inch balls.  To form a mouse, pinch one end of
  the ball to form the nose. For the ears, make 2 tiny balls of dough
  and flatten slightly; gently press into the dough on the upper front
  of each mouse body. For the eyes, press 2 miniature chocolate chips
  into the dough below the ears. Place the shaped cookies 2 inches
  apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 13 minutes, or until
  set.  For the tails, immediately place a piece of licorice into the
  rounded end of each cookie. Remove from the cookie sheets.
