Tea Cake Cookies

Tea Cake Cookies
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Sift flour, baking powder and salt and add to first mixture. Roll about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter. Bake 8-10 minutes. COOKIES DO NOT BROWN! Sprinkle with sugar if desired before cooking; or after cool, ice (I use powdered sugar and water colored to desired color).
