1 1/4 cups sugar 3 cups all-purpose flour (plus some for sprinkling)
1 cup of shortening 3/4 tsp baking powder
2 eggs 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup light corn syrup 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vanilla
First I cream all the sugar and shortening together until it's light an fluffy. Next I add the eggs, vanilla and syrup. When this is well mixed I add my dry ingredients. I usually whisk them in a separate bowl before adding them to my wet ingredients. Once the dough is combined and able to be formed into a ball I place it into a piece of plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to chill for at least an hour.
