Picture 983

1 lb of butter ( make sure this is softened, room temperature works best, but do not melt in the microwave)
1 1/2 cups icing sugar ( confectionery sugar)
5 cups flour

Mix and work together
( I usually beat butter first, slowly add in icing sugar, then add flour gradually)

Roll out and cut into various shapes.

 ( Not just for Christmas, I made these is the shapes of Guitar Pics for Kent’s Birthday)

Bake at 300 for 30 minutes.



4 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup shortening
