Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup Crisco
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg white
Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, shortening and honey. Cut in the flour until mixture is about the size of marbles. Add egg yolks, lemon juice, vanilla and almond extract. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.

Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with floured cookie cutter or make balls. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 325°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
Makes about 60 cookies.
