T-Rex Cookie Recipe for Sugar Cookies
1 Cup Vegetable Shortening – NOT butter flavored
1 1/2 White Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
*Beat until fluffy*
2 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
*Sift or whisk together*
Add dry ingredients to the shortening/sugar/egg mixture until well combined. Scoop into 2 oz cookie balls and flatten the tops so they are “pucks”.
Freeze for 4 hours.
Place frozen pucks onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
Sprinkle with colored sugar or festive sprinkles. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Remove and allow to rest on cookie sheets before transferring to cooling racks.
