New Secret Recipe
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2- 3 assorted colors of paste food coloring
Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.
Divide dough into portions, tinting each portion of dough with a different color of food coloring. Knead coloring into dough until well mixed. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
On a lightly floured surface, roll a portion of the dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. Using a 2-1/2-inch cookie cutter, cut dough into desired shapes. (For 5-1/4-inch cookies, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness.) Place cutouts on an un-greased cookie sheet. Refrigerate cutouts for 15 minutes. Using small cookie cutters, make smaller cutouts and fill each opening with another color of dough.
Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 7 to 8 minutes for smaller cookies or about 10 minutes for larger cookies or until edges are firm and bottoms are very lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute.
Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
Makes 48 cookies.
